Economics for Professional Development - David Triggs (24 Jan, 7 Feb, 28 March)
This is a new project to develop and market courses on the science of political economy that address the needs of a wide range of professions as they seek to refine and develop their competence along the lines required by their professional institutions. During these three sessions David will rehearse some of the material that he has prepared. For those who have never studied economics the courses are intended to provide a fascinating introduction to those aspects of natural law that underpin it. For those with previous exposure to the subject, they should be a refreshing challenge. Development is currently at an early stage and David will welcome constructive observations from anyone who would or could be interested in helping with the development of the project.
