THE PHILOSOPHY AND ECONOMICS OF POLITICS

Starts 24th May, 6-7.30pm, 6 Tuesdays, $43

Description

Why do political parties believe in different things (and do they)?

“The morality of a [political] party must grow out of the conscience and the participation of the voters.”                                  Eleanor Roosevelt

Why do left wing parties prefer higher or progressive taxes and why do right wing parties prefer less state intervention?  What do the terms left and right mean and are they still relevant? This course will discuss the different terminology and the reasons why political parties economically and philosophically believe in different things. It will explore the beginnings and the ongoing development of parties and the ideas behind them.
