“The fresh and innovative approach has changed the way I look at the world, and gives hope there is a better way”
The School now offers a three term course of Introductory Economics based on the idea of Economics with Justice, with each term being a complete course in itself. Economics with justice is the natural extension of philosophy into the life of people in society. We know that individually, people cannot live without morals, ethics and consideration for others. The same principles apply to society, yet economics is routinely taught as though they had no application at all. The courses aim to redress some of the deficiencies and the result is a fresh and illuminating approach to many of the major issues of our time:
Above all, the courses seek to show that freedom and prosperity for every living human being is possible if economic laws are observed with the intention that economic arrangements will produce a just outcome.
Introductory Economics with Justice – The Foundation Course
The Foundation Course outlines principles relating to all the major areas of economic study. The view that economics is a human study, involving all of humanity, and that humanity has to be seen in its context within the whole universe is the starting point. The message is clear. Importing considerations of justice, equity and natural law into understanding how economic laws work really does offer much brighter prospects for planetary health and human prosperity.
Details, including a synopsis of the course and a frequently asked questions section, together with contact details, can be found on the course’s own website, www.economicswithjustice.org.

Introductory Economics with Justice – Part 2
This course sets modern economics in its historical context. It shows the way that the evolution of economic thought has governed how the global economy and its attendant problems have developed. At the same time it offers a fresh economic analysis that emphasises the importance of nature as the source of wealth and of human society as the agent of distribution.
Introductory Economics with Justice – Part 3
This explores the implications of economics with justice with particular reference to the imperatives to economic growth, the problems of food production and distribution, economic sustainability and human development. The course attempts to show how principles of truth, love and service translate into policies for governments and economic planners and practical precepts for individual households and businesses.
