Economics with Justice Course
Can our economic arrangements produce a just and equitable outcome for all?
Can economics be directed towards stability and prosperity for all?
Economics-with-Justice is a fresh and innovative approach to economics.
Economic life is about relationships; our relationship with World at large, and our relationships with each other: How we organise the societies we live in, how we live together.
Previous experience of the subject is not necessary.
Here are some of the questions we explore:
- Why is it that the rich seem to get richer and the poor get poorer?
- Where does our money supply come from and who creates it?
- How is wealth created and how may it be fairly distributed?
- Why do some people earn many times what others earn?
- Are markets natural, and may they be fair and free?
- Can tax ever be fair?
- Why is housing so expensive?
- How may we all prosper, how may the true potential of every human being be realised?
- How can economic injustice be reduced and economic freedom be established?
WE CHALLENGE many of the current assumptions, which have led to a limited and narrow view of the subject, and of human life itself.
The course will also demonstrate how freedom and prosperity for every living human being is possible through the discovery and practice of natural economic laws.
It is the natural companion to philosophy, for no one can live well without morals, ethics and consideration and co-operation with others. Taking a larger view, the same applies to societies and nations.
It is an urgent and engaging study; and a vital study for our time.

This 6-week course covers the basic principles that underlie all economic and social activity.
We set the scene with an overall view of where we are now. We move forward to explore these basic principles of economic life and how it may be possible for the current unjust situation to evolve into a system which has Justice at its heart:-
Where the resources of the earth are recognised as a common heritage and need to be made accessible to all so that the highest possibilities of human life may be realised.
Where the beautiful planet we inhabit, which is the source of all material wealth, is properly respected and cared for.
Where a free economy under Justice will provide inspiration and opportunity for everyone to prosper and flourish.
When justice, equity and natural law are applied in the field of economic and social activity, all human work naturally offers the prospect of planetary health and prosperity for everyone.
