University of Kent.

In 2011-2012 I teach an undergraduate introductory course in economomics for the University of Kent Buisiness School. This year the Canterbury and Medway versions are slightly different, due to the creation of an accounting programme in Medway that requires a higher economics content. For more details, please go respectively to the Microeconomics for business page and the Economics mode B page on the School of Economics website.
