Economics

Courses are academic classes taught by qualified instructors that are intended to enhance participant’s knowledge of a given area or training in a particular discipline. Courses vary broadly in terms of length, size, content and duration.

Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.

Never has there been a better time and a more urgent need to create a more resilient and participatory future by turning our attention to alternative economic paradigms. If you feel stuck or uncertain about what you can do and yearn to open the door to these new possibilities then our e-learning programme is for you. Many know that our current economic system is no longer sustainable, yet few are aware of the alternatives? Our aim is to give you a better understanding of those alternatives and the true meaning of economy and wealth. Participants will learn about existing systems and tools that are useful, and redesign those that have proven dysfunctional based on already tested alternatives. To do nothing is to accept that but a handful of economists and political leaders still believe the answer to our problems is more economic growth – more production, more consumption, more highways, more buildings, more logging, more fishing, etc., ad infinitum. By continuing to collectively pay for this dysfunctional system through our taxes, we are all becoming accomplices in an environmental despoliation and ever-increasing debt serfdom as we remain addicted to growth and the way money is created. "The Third Industrial Revolution will also bring with it a more democratic economy.
