Economics Trip to London

Students first visited the Bank of England where they explored inflation and monetary policy.

They also learnt about the Gold Standard. Some of our student took great delight in lifting a gold bar worth £376,000. Our students then had the pleasure of meeting Dr Madsen Pirie and Daniel Pryor at the Adam Smith Institute. They covered a range of policy issues including Trump, Brexit, free trade, housing crisis, immigration, prostitution, drugs and gay marriages. Finally, they visited the Tax Payers’ Alliance where they had an interesting presentation and Q and A session on taxation policy by Alex Wild.
