    This is a discussion group for those of you who either already enjoy reading the Economist, or who are looking for great insights about the way politics, economics, finance, demographics, culture, science and technology might shape life in Britain, and the rest of the world. The Economist is a wide ranging magazine, with a very readable house style. If you don't know it, it is a discovery worth making. As a group, we focus, in a highly participative way, on the Leaders each week. You will be debating the Economist's interpretations and its solutions. Where time permits, you can also share knowledge of other articles you may have found of interest. We set out to enjoy our sessions. Join us, and you will find yourself naturally involved, better informed, and awaiting the next session with interest!

    Note: The Spring term will be held via video-conference (Zoom).
