Start of the school year: 2014-15
Welcome to students (both in G11 and G12) who are looking at this blog for the first time and welcome back to students who have seen it all before.
I would like you to tell me what resources would be useful to you and I will try to supply them.
In your studies, remember the words of J.M. Keynes: “The Theory of Economics does not furnish a body of settled conclusions immediately applicable to policy. It is a method rather than a doctrine, an apparatus of the mind, a technique of thinking, which helps its possessor to draw correct conclusions.”
There are NO “settled conclusions“–every theory or policy can be criticised and rethought. You should be trying to develop ” a technique of thinking” NOT memorizing content. I will, therefore, be trying to help you acquire the tools that will enable you to analyse and evaluate economic theories and policies.
I hope that you all enjoy this school year and that you learn a lot!
