Economics is complex and best left to the experts, right? Wrong! The economy affects all of us. We can all get our heads around it, and understand the myths and the alternatives!

This workshop is designed for people who feel angry about the injustice of inequality, poverty and the attack on public services that is the result of austerity and want to counter government’s spin on things but feel intimidated when ‘economics’ comes up in a conversation.
We’ll create a friendly environment to talk about the economy in, no patronising or man-splaining- we promise!

Together we will learn of the major political and economic decisions of the last 100 years that shape our world today. The workshop will look at what the real situation is with debt in the UK, that of individuals and companies, as well as the government, and how this compares to countries in crisis from Greece to Ghana. And it will help people articulate an alternative approach to the austerity agenda, both in the UK, and in solidarity with people resisting around the world.

Facilitated by The Economic Justice Project and part of the Spark 2016.
