Join us to read and think about the news as reported in the world's most influential weekly news magazine. The Economist has an international perspective, examining countries and current developments on a wide range of topics. Written for the general public, the magazine has something for everyone - reportage, commentary, profiles, criticism, statistics, and even cartoons. Articles are typically 1-2 pages. A background in economics is NOT necessary. Each week 4 or 5 class members volunteer to take a different article from the current issue and prepare a short summary and commentary for the class the following week. In addition, the entire class will read a major article for discussion. A print or digital subscription is required - a low-priced deal for both for 12 weeks is usually available. Expect to participate In lively discussions on current topics!
Instructor(s): Charles Wright, Jack Burks
Charles is a retired Architect. During his career, he was involved in a number of projects for International Organizations in Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and the Caribbean. Join us for some interesting discussions.
Jack received a classical liberal arts education at Swarthmore and an MBA from Harvard. Natural inclination and professional necessity have led him to a life of encyclopedic reading in order to hang some flesh of understanding on the bones of education. He hopes the excitement of that quest will infect this class too.
