This course looks at the current - and potential future - impact on the UK economy of BREXIT. Through charts, we look at the options - and effects - facing the new UK Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson - or 'Boris' as he is known to many. (Helped by his previous appearances on quiz shows!)

Topic areas covered include (the Economics of):

  • Sterling

  • Stocks and shares

  • House prices

  • Borrowing

  • Retailers' responses

  • Business inactivity

  • International trade

  • Inflation

  • Unemployment and wages

  • Expert view

Throughout, the approach is the same:

  • Look at the data/chart

  • Analyse the possible macro/micro economic effects and response

Of course, this course will date so it is important that students turn ON Educational Announcements and also, where possible, take part in discussions.
