A timely Economics Trip - posted 17th December

On the 26th November, Year 13 Economics Students were fortunate enough to be able to attend an Economics Conference in central London. The event included a wide range of speakers from across the political spectrum, namely the Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell MP, Kate Hoey MP, Kamal Ahmed of the BBC, as well as Vicky Pryce, former Deputy Head of the UK Economic Service, In turn, students were able to analyse the economic opinions put to them by speakers – often pertaining to the impact of Brexit – before evaluating and further discussing the political ideology that underpinned the argumentation, comparing it to the economic theory taught in the classroom. Indeed students were given the opportunity to grill the speakers of the event, with Sam Turner (13Burrows) asking Kamal Ahmed about the long-run implications of artificial intelligence, and Sebastian Maxted (13Ridgeway) questioning Kate Hoey MP as to the division of the Labour Party between ‘leave’ and ‘remain’, lending itself to a potential political split.
