Economics and Horses, Sunshine and Summer


Economics and Horses, Sunshine and Summer, Three Economics seminars – learn from these!.

Course Description

In the Spring/Summer of 2024 a unique series of seminars was held in Oxford UK. The attending group of students were split into three groups and each group was given a topic seemingly unrelated to Economics. Their task was to devise a short talk using the topic as a prompt, on the theme of Economics.

These talks were NOT filmed but some notes were taken and this course is the result of this note-taking.

The purpose is to show how many many seemingly not-related-to-Economics topics can be taken and with careful application be developed into a short talk whereby economics may be learned.

The topics here are:


  • Economic perspectives of the Equine Industry
