CERGE-EI, Prague

CERGE is possibly the best place to learn and understand economics at doctorate level, with research in theoretical and policy-related economics taking place in their facilities in Prague. We can arrange a GCSE/A Level presentation giving your students a detailed but digestible explanation of political systems, economic development, GDP, budgets, inflation and unemployment to name a few. At the end of the presentation, your students will be able to ask questions that help them to start thinking like an economist.
