Economics CPD Courses Coming up this Term!- Book Your Places Now!
Here is my regularly-updated selection of books for economics students keen to demonstrate a commitment to independent thought and active learning. Please reflect and comment on what you have read in your UCAS statement!
I have taken out quite a bit of banking stuff because I think we are all getting pretty bored of this! More this time on the inter-play between Economics, Geography, Biology, Mathematics and History – which I find much more interesting! No author appears more than once! As always I am bound to have made some terrible omissions and I am happy to amend the list based on the recommendations of blog readers. Please do leave a comment below. I have added in some links to relevant book reviews.
