February 5 @ 11:15 - 12:00

In this Economics session, Dr James Watson, Associate Professor in Financial Economics in the School of Economics at University of East Anglia, will deliver a topic-based talk within an overall session theme of Aggregate Demand.

James will discuss what aggregate demand is; what affects the components of aggregate demand; and what this means for policymakers, including the challenges and tradeoffs they face.

Aggregate Demand is closely related to Gross Domestic Product and the wealth of an economy. The UK economy hasn’t grown much in recent years, and many organisations predict low growth for the coming years.

This short session will give us a chance to understand together what contributes to the wealth of our economy, the challenges the UK economy faces, and what our policymakers can do to help.
