Evan Davis headlines new series of Economics talks run by students

Evan Davis of the BBC, Carol Bagnold of HSBC and Dr James Nixon of TheCityUK are starring in a new series of Economics talks at the University of Exeter. The Series for Economic Exploration (SEE Talks) has been developed to inspire all students about macro-economic issues. 

Run by a small team of students from a wide variety of disciplines across the University the SEE Talks aim to bring a new experience to students through cross disciplinary discussion around economics issues; introducing a series of speakers who interlink many disciplines studied at the University, and applying them to current events.

Funded by graduates through the University of Exeter Annual Fund, the series is supported by the Business School, Students as Change Agents, the Career Zone and the Student's Guild at the University of Exeter.

The events are free to attend, and all are welcome.

The talks are:

The Economics of Britain's EU membership and the future of the Euro area.
