Ask a Question on the Economy


We know the economy can be confusing. It impacts on many areas of our lives – from household budgeting, and buying a house or car, to making major life choice. Yet how many of us really understand how it works, or what certain terms mean?

An opinion poll we commissioned found almost two thirds of people don’t know what a ‘government deficit’ is, and two out of every five citizens don’t know what ‘austerity’ means. Read the poll results here.

That’s why this section is dedicated to answering your questions. Just send us your question and it will be answered by CLASS economist Michael Davies.

We look forward to your question.

P.S. This section is for questions about the economy/economics. For other questions e.g. about our organisation, please use our contact form. To keep updated on our work, you can sign up to our mailing list
