  • Sindisile William Madyo South Africa Course Module: Introduction to Economics Course Topic: Other Social Sciences Comment: I am intrigued by the human behavioural aspects of economics as it applies to the distribution and production of goods and services. I am particularly interested in learning best practices in mitigating and aggravating influence of economic policies and application in social context. Through learning forums I am hoping to get exposure to theories and principles of economics in the most practical way. With limited time on my hands I am hoping to assimilate as much as I can to improve my performance at work. I am grateful to Alison and their partners for making learning accessible to all. 2013-06-04 13:06:19

  • Eric Claus Australia Course Module: Economic activityCourse Topic: ImmigrationComment: An increase in immigration also adds to the infrastructure costs of the government, which means that taxes go up or services diminish. Average wages don't increase (they decrease slightly) with high immigration but congestion and pollution increase. Housing prices and infrastructure prices also increase like Water and Electricity and Transport costs have increased in the last 10 years in Sydney. 2013-05-01 12:05:37
