The Economic Cycle Blog will be returning in September 2015 as a key part of the 'Next Revolution', hosted by Tutor 2U with support from the Royal Economic Society.

The concept of the 'Economic Cycle Blog' was part conceived in Kirkcaldy, the Scottish town which I passed through in my UK warm up ride in 2010. It was most famous in the late 18th century for producing Adam Smith and his seminal work ‘An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations'.

This blog was aimed at A-level & undergraduate students and teachers and explored some of the fundamental economics principles that underlie the everyday actions of societies that I passed through, ranging from the most basic Africa market operating outside of the formal economy to high level international policymaking. An ongoing theme was to explore the role that education plays in economic development.

Since returning, I have lectured on the concept at the Economic Research Council & the Tutor 2 U National Conference for economics teachers.

I am looking to turn the concept into a book. Do take a look at the attached proposal (just read the overview!) if you're interested.
