Economics for Real People: How Economies Grow


Exams are over, holiday have finished, and students are hard at it again. That means Auckland Uni Economics Group meeetings start up again. Here’s what’s on tomorow night:

Hi everyone,
We hope that you are all set for another semester of classes. And more importantly, we hope that you are all set for another great semester of Economics Group seminars.
Economic ideas, as we have seen, change the world and any student of economics must be familiar with the range of ideas that exist. This is especially important as economists struggle to explain what has happened in recent years to the world's financial system.
So far this year, we have looked at such topics as: The Broken Window Fallacy, The Division of Labour, and (most recently) The Clash That Defined Modern Economics.
This week we resume our programme by looking at How Economies Grow (or, in other words: Capital and its Structure).
What does growth look like? What exactly grows? What part do savings and credit creation play? And what’s the difference between growth and progress—and how do different schools of economic thought differ on this and other related questions?

    Date: Thursday, 24 July
Time: 6-7pm
Location: Case Room Two, Level Zero, Business School (OGGB)
                          (plenty of parking below, entrance off Grafton Rd)

All welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
