As you can see, I haven’t been very active in what regards posting on my blog. My time as been split apart between work and a new challenge that I’m taking. My free time has been dedicated to the remote diploma in the University of Oxford that I mentioned previously.
The diploma in “New economic Powers” has been a very nice experience. The course consists in studying the macro-economy and the decisions taken by several countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China) that allowed them to grow at a higher rate then developed countries and the expectations raised that they will be the “new economic powers” of the XXI century.
The course itself consists in weekly lessons where you are given a few papers to read. Each week we have to write a few blog posts about the subject in hands and do public posts on the forum about questions that are made. We should also contribute to the discussion by commenting on other posts and raise questions. By the end of the course we will have two longer essays that we need to submit for appreciation by the professor.
