Exploring Macroeconomic Policies in London

Our Year 12 Economics students had a super trip to London visiting two think tanks and the Bank of England.

Dr Madsen Pirie gave us insights into the latest ideas for creating more investment and wealth in the economy through free market reforms.

Duncan Simpson, Research Director at the Taxpayers’ Alliance, explained many of their campaign successes in exposing government tax and the need for lower taxes, including a reduction in beer duty and fiscal drag.

Finally, we visited the Bank of England exploring monetary policy. A highlight of the visit was lifting a gold bar worth just over £500,000.
