insight4me Economics: How Should We Regulate Externalities? With Dr Amrish Patel From University of East Anglia
December 3 @ 11:10 - 12:10
insight4me is a series of subject specific webinars for current Year 12/Year 13 students. The sessions support students’ current studies by giving an insight into particular curriculum areas whilst affording students the opportunity to talk to universities and make informed comparisons about how, in this case, Economics is taught.
In this session, Dr Amrish Patel, representing University of East Anglia, will present How should we regulate externalities?
Amrish will look at classic government intervention through the eyes of a behavioural economist and then identify new policies that follow from behavioural economics.
Students will have the chance to ask and respond to questions and share their own ideas.

Suitable for: Year 12 and 13 students studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Economics and related disciplines.

Dedicated videoconferencing equipment is also compatible if available to the school. Further details are here: Connecting in to a Channel Talent Event (Please Click)
