Overview

The Politics of Economics and the Economics of Politicians explores the unique relationship between how nations are governed and how they generate and manage wealth. Most of the focus is given to seven contemporary and historical political leaders whose actions enabled great economic changes in the countries they led.

The course's main instructor Sir Vince Cable, is not only a politician but also an academic. He served as the Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy of the United Kingdom, and is currently a professor in Practice at the London School of Economics, a visiting professor at Saint Mary University, and a visiting Professor at Nottingham University.

We also learn from leading economists at the University of Nottingham, including Head of School Professor Kevin Lee and Professor of Political Economy Cecilia Testa.
