April 2021 update: New section added but – warning! – this includes homework. If you’re keen on participating and discussing (with Instructor interaction) then this course is ideal BUT if you just want to watch videos and never post in Q/A this is not for you!
LATEST ADDITION: In-depth analysis of the ECONOMICS of Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Up to date as at 27th October 2020. Who knows – this may influence the way some people vote!!
This course looks at the two economies of the UK and the USA as they stand in early June 2019. During the visit to the UK by President Trump we look at the two economies – the one the UK PM is leaving behind as a legacy and the one President Trump is (temporarily) departing from.
As part of the analysis we apply basic macroeconomic concepts.
Key topic areas include:
- National debt
This course is fully up to date and will be of interest to anyone interested in current, real world, economics
