#Understanding the economy

“Clearly a system that allocates access to the study of higher-level economics to those who are willing and able to meet the increasingly demanding academic and financial price charged by the UK’s old universities is one that risks excluding from this important body of knowledge those from lower income groups. Skewing access to the study of economics in this way has the potential to harm not just the career prospects of the socially disadvantaged but also impoverishing the wider debate on economic issues at the level of the nation.”

Still trying to understand this thing. I want to retweet the underlying article with this quote from it as a comment. Hopefully the two actions will be proximate enough to be understood.
