Economics - with - Justice
This fresh and innovative approach to economics considers the principle relating to the major areas of economic study.
It takes as its basic assumption that in practice economics should have a just and equitable outcome for those participating in, or affected by, the economy.
Economics is approached as a human study, with humanity seen in the context of its place in nature and the universe. The role of nature as the source of wealth and sustainer of life is emphasized.
Importing considerations of justice, equity and nature's laws into the study of how economic laws work opens up a much brighter prospect for planetary health and human prosperity.
Modules 2 & 3
For those who wish to continue and develop the study, there are two further modules available.
The first sets economics in its historical context, showing how the evolution of economic thought has governed the development of the global economy and its attendant problems.
The second addresses the related questions of economic growth, sustainabilty and human development.
Review JS 30.03.13
“I've found the two terms of the economics course really interesting and stimulating. I have got a lot out of the course: the concept of a land value tax is very timely in view of widespread tax evasion / avoidance, and the historical perspective of this terms course shows how the great thinkers were very much of their own time and circumstances, although they still give us insight into today's issues.
