Getting involved in the 'econowhat?' reading group will help you understand the basics of the financial crisis and what that means for social justice in the UK and the rest of the world.

You can take part in the reading group as an individual or a group. You can meet up with friends, or take the chance to meet other people in your area.


You can also get involved in the online discussion on the Facebook group.

Suggested short readings, articles, and films for a ten session reading group.


You might want to read from start to finish, or just pick a couple of topics that interest you.
