Economics and Horses, Sunshine and Summer

Three Economics seminars – learn from these!


In the Spring/Summer of 2024 a unique series of seminars was held in Oxford UK. The attending group of students were split into three groups and each group was given a topic seemingly unrelated to Economics. Their task was to devise a short talk using the topic as a prompt, on the theme of Economics.

These talks were NOT filmed but some notes were taken and this course is the result of this note-taking.

The purpose is to show how many many seemingly not-related-to-Economics topics can be taken and with careful application be developed into a short talk whereby economics may be learned.

The topics here are:


  • Economic perspectives of the Equine Industry

  • Economic impact of horse tourism

  • Summer dnamics in the Equine industry

  • Supply chain and price fluctuations

  • Policy and Economic planning

  • Future outlook and opportunities


  • The sunny side of Economics:

  • The psychology of sunshine

  • Productivity and labour markets

  • Energy consumption and costs

  • Agricultural economics

  • Tourism and leisure industries

  • Implications for Policy and planning

Economic benefits of sunshine:

  • Promotion of solar energy

  • Urban planning and infrastructure

  • Tourism development

  • Agricultural policies

  • Health and wellbeing initiatives

  • Educational programs

  • Regulatory frameworks

Embracing summer:

  • The magic of summer sunshine

  • Educational opportunities

  • Challenges and considerations

  • Consumer behaviour in summer

  • Seasonal employment opportunities

  • Agricultural economic impact
