Welcome Back to Uni for 2012 – Details of First Meeting

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by our “Economics for Real People” table at theBusinessSchool’s orientation week.

First, the important news:

In this week’s seminar we will provide a framework for viewing economics and briefly look at the range of schools of economic thought. Then we will look at a simple economic idea (a small story in fact) that was formulated over 100 years ago, but today is almost forgotten.  This simple story may very well change the way you view economics. It certainly has done for many who have heard it.

One lucky person will win a copy of the timeless book “Economics in One Lesson” along with $50 in cash. So come along and you could be the winner.

Date: Thursday, 8th March
Time: 6pm
Where: Case Room 2, Level O, Business School

What we are all about:

For many of you this is your first year at university. For others, it is your second or even third year. But what is important is that each year at university you continue on this fascinating intellectual journey where you learn about ideas and more importantly learn to challenge those ideas with honesty and intellectual rigour. That was why we, as students, established this group. We hope that what you learn here will play an important part in your intellectual journey and guide you in whatever field you choose to work. And we’ll do that in a fun and interesting way.

See you there,
