Maybe show an interest on impulse, yes, but before you enrol, watch the Preview videos, read the Course Description and then make a decision. If you then enrol then please start the course as soon as possible. Watch the lectures, look at the workbooks and join in the discussions. Joining my courses is a serious business and I want you to get the most out of your study – but I also want you to enjoy the course.
That is why I am asking that you only enrol because you really want to and that you start the course intending to make full use of all the resources.
You will be very welcome.
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):
Stocks and shares
Unemployment and wages
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.

This course is very informative and useful even for someone with no prior knowledge in economics. The explanation is clear and the delivery keeps you interested from one topic to the next. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the subject.
I found the course very educational in terms of economic theory in general and great fun with all the examples related to Brexit. In fact, there was an extension after 10/31 & an election is just a few days away. I follow the political side of the Brexit mess as best I can; now I have a better understanding of many of the financial issues as well. Of course, lots of this is applicable here in the US. Very enjoyable course & I'm off to continue with other courses by this instructor.
This course was a very good match for me, as it goes over Britain’s economic status in very great detail as the Brexit date approaches - just what I wanted!
Another great course and very relevant to the current times. As an American, I was a bit lost on what was going on if I am being honest so this was timely for me to be able to keep up with things I am seeing online and gain a better understanding of Brexit.
This additional unit on the 39 Billion that was uploaded recently was once again well explained and brings us up to date as to where we are with Brexit. The material was well presented as usual. As there may be an opportunity to go through another referendum - the courses on Brexit provided by Chris Sivewright will provide you with an historic/current background as to what the government has done so far and what is happening at present.
