A new academic year
Welcome to the 11th graders (Class of 2018) who have started studying economics for the first time ever and congratulations to the 12th graders (Class of 2017) who are now more than half-way through the course. The end is in sight.
I hope that you will find some of the resources on this blog useful. But the most useful resource is the world around you. There will be a lot of interesting events this year that have economic implications–for example, the results of the US presidential election in November; the effects on Britain, on Europe, and on the global economy of “Brexit”; and the developments in Japan as PM Abe and the Bank of Japan try to ensure that the economy keeps moving. So pay attention to the real world.
