The first session was one of the simplest types of printing called Monoprinting
Monoprinting has a number of exponents including Tracey Emin.
In fact it is illuminating to realise that even some fairly simple stuff does require technique and a modicum of talent and preparation.
Idea 147 is Economics
Having followed Ian Crofton's Big Ideas around Politics it's quite exciting to get to the topic of Economics (known by Thomas Carlyle as the 'Dismal Science') - the subject has been somewhat colonized by the Scots with Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations one of the stand-out tomes.
In fact Economics is pretty much tied up with political questions, For example - how much should government do to direct the economy? How Should it intervene to meet fiscal targets?
Economics has two big categories Microeconomics (Individual people and companies) and Macroeconomics (National Scale).
