Learn about the economy here, on this course!
What makes this course unusual
1. A very heavy emphasis on Instructor interaction – do NOT just watch videos…join in! Bring your knowledge of Economics in India!
2. Current workbooks (July 2021)
3. Current assessment of Economic policy in India (July 2021)
4. No economic knowledge assumed and yet we immediately engage in discussion
5. Rapid learning as the Economics is all current and supported by references.
6. The Oxford Diploma (free) on meeting the criteria
7. Two textbooks and two workbooks are included – everything you need! (Textbooks and workbooks on Economics are free) Therefore you will also learn core Microeconomics and Macroeconomics.
This course is split into four sections
1. The current state of the Indian economy
2. Provocative points – a series of lectures designed to stimulate discussion
3. The Indian economy in the short and medium term future – under the pandemic
4. The views of experts
Throughout the course economic theory and practical examples are explored. We look at
Unemployment – demand deficient in particular
Inflation – the impact of oil
Healthcare – a disaster?
Infrastructure – promises kept
Economic growth – and recession
Exports as an injection – but what of Bangladesh?
Agriculture – labour intensive
Of course I am hoping that students from India in particular, will join in the many discussions. The course asks questions; homework is set. We look at the work of current economists, current data (expressed in charts) and economic forecasts. No attempt is made to ‘judge’ merely to explore the situation as it now is, how it is projected – and then ask for comments.
The course is several hours long but not so long that you’ll never finish! The homework too is such that you’re encouraged to research and then report back via the Q/A – hence the title ‘Let’s talk about….’ …Economics Economics and then more Economics!
So if you are interested in
b. Global economics
c. The economy in India
d. Microeconomics (as I also mention theory)
e. Macroeconomics (as we deal with inflation, growth etc)
f. Anything and everything Economics (as this course is developing)
If you do not like participating, do not like homework, do not like being asked questions – then this course is NOT for you. But if you want really current information, in-depth discussions, examination of the economy in India – then enrol!
