Overview

Economics is concerned with some of the most important issues which affect us all - employment, prices, housing, poverty, the distribution of income and wealth, the environment and pollution, leisure, government spending on services such as health, education and transport, competitiveness, investment, productivity and growth, international trade and finance. In the aftermath of the world financial crisis and Brexit economics has never been more relevant
