Money and the banking system
This week Clive Menzies from the Occupy London economics group discusses money, the banking system and what we can do. Plus music from Lowkey, Akala and Cassette Boy.
Over the past months we have widened the boundaries of economic discourse, hosting a huge number of talks, lectures, debates, teach outs and discussions. In the words of Giles Fraser “Occupy really has made whole new conversations possible.”
We are now launching an exciting new online leaning programme. The first course to be released is Occupied Economics. You can either undertake this as:
- Diploma in Occupied Economics. Over the course of around 70 questions we explore the history and causes of our current economic predicament. Links to sources of information to help your study are provided as you work through the questions. You should allow around 20 minutes to finish the questions, or longer if you want to explore all the links.
- Certificate in Occupied Economics. A much shorter summary: around 20 questions, about 5 minutes, but fewer gags.
After successfully completing the multiple choice exam students can download their diploma certificate. If you wish to make a small donation to camp funds we can post you a full colour, printed copy of your certificate.
Please feel free to leave comments, questions, suggestions or clarifications below. If you are interested in developing new course material please email us.
