‘Economics is the study of incentives. How do individuals, firms and governments make decisions?

‘An understanding of economics is useful in recognising how the world works, from economic downturns to public policy. Why do people make irrational decisions, and how might they be incentivised to make better ones?

‘A New College of the Humanities economics education will make you think hard about the rules of economic theory from the very first lecture. From industrialisation to drug trafficking or the future of the National Health Service, we ask each student to apply his or her knowledge to new problems, and to voice their ideas in class.’

Dr Marianna Koli, Head of Faculty & Senior Lecturer in Economics
