Economics is everywhere in the public debate, but economists are not. So much of what political leaders say relates to the economy, but so few of them say anything of real substance. Most community advocates, like most politicians, are not economists but most advocates, unlike most politicians, feel uncomfortable talking about things in which they are not expert.
This course is designed to decode political spin and economic nonsense, and unpack economics for progressive advocacy.
