DD309 : Doing economics: people, markets and policy - Week 13

Week 13 – Welfare economics and social choice

13.1 Welfare economics and social choiceRead DEPMP, Book 1, Part II: Chapter 9
13.2 New directions in welfare (happiness and the capabilities approach)View a short film

A long train journey and Chapter 8 was read and pretty much understood. It didn't really seem to be a full chapter's worth of new ideas, but it did go over the slight re-use of already well hammered out concepts in great detail. I hope this chapter on Welfare economics starts getting challenging, as so far this course has been a bit disappointing in terms of being stretched academically.

At some point in the near future our EMA project subjects and ideas have to be decided on and at this stage I have no idea, absolutely nothing, completely bank, inspiration negative.

Well I can get the first part of the next TMA completed now, and then hopefully the last TMA result will arrive.
