Economics Taster Lecture

Do people really understand international trade?

International trade is a key pillar of our modern economic well-being. Without it, our material lives would likely be worse, and that is why discussions of trade are at the heart of international politics. The UK is currently engaged in the biggest trade negotiations of its recent history. But do most people really understand what trade means and how it works? Can trade even be understood by just studying Economics, and how can economists talk about trade more accessibly? This talk argues that for a realistic and productive discussion, we need input from many areas of study, but that Economics continues to provide necessary tools and insights into how trade can best contribute to well-being in the global economy.


We look forward to welcoming current Year 12 and Year 13 who are interested in studying Economics.
