Breaking News ... The Economics Club is Born
The Economics Club is new to QEGS this term and is a pupil-led venture which explores the economics behind a wide range of events and scenarios.
Each week, pupils will give a presentation on a topic of their choosing and the group discusses and debates any potential implications. Our first presentation was from Daniel Smith, Oliver Cass and Shuayb Ahmed on ‘The Economics behind the colonisation of Mars’ which was extremely well-researched and entertaining.
Harry Newman talked about ‘The success of economic failure’ in the second week, drawing inspiration from ‘The Big Short’. He gave an interesting insight into who benefits from global economic catastrophe and it was definite food for thought.
Alongside the club, the group are also developing an Economics newsletter which they hope to get out to pupils and staff termly. Any contributions gratefully received!
