Schwartz Media presents --
A Guide to Writing About Politics and the Economy... For Non-Economists
with Richard Denniss
Economics is everywhere in the public debate, but economists are not. So much of what political leaders say relates to the economy, but so few of them say anything of real substance. Most journalists, like most politicians, are not economists but most journalists, unlike most politicians, feel uncomfortable talking about things in which they are not expert. This course is designed to make writers far more confident in decoding political spin and economic nonsense.
