Londonwide Local Exchange Trading Scheme (LETS)
Economic literacy as a defence against confused economists Please note change of venue:
Level 6, Royal Festival Hall, South Bank Center
Thursdays 3pm to 5pm (flexible).
Do not let the word Economics intimidate you: Economics is the simplest of the Social Sciences but Economists have made it obscure during the last hundred years. Understanding Real World Economics is a requirement for effective participation in the life of society.
Economist Joan Robinson warned us:
The purpose of studying economics is... to learn how to avoid being deceived by economists. (0.00 links)
