The first in the series of learning forums on Economics was held last night, 2nd March in Holywell Trust.
We all were interested in demystifying the language of Economics. What is it about? The origins of the word are Greek - eco meaning house and nomis meaning management, so Economics is about housekeeping - putting your house in order. We looked at economic activity - providing the basics of food, shelter, services and we wondered about the structures for providing these in the future.
Next week's focus is Money. We'll be watching the video Money as Debt (on this site) and reading James Robertson's Open Money Manifesto (attached below). New learners welcome.
Listen out for this week's radio interview with Rob Hopkins - details will be posted.
