Let's All Go to the Movies!!

It's Friday, it's 5 o'clock and it's movie time!!

My recommendation for this week is "An Inconvenient Truth", a great new documentary about global warming presented by Al Gore, the US presidential candidate who some argue should have won the 2000 American presidential election.

It sounds like it might be a bit boring - but actually the previews I've seen have been absolutely gripping - like the most exciting Hollywood disaster movie - except that unfortunately the images in this movie have not been created by special effects - they are real!

This is a must-see for all students thinking of re-sitting module 3 in January. Try to get to see it if you can - it covers just about the whole of the module 3 syllabus in 90 minutes. When it comes out on DVD, we'll get a copy for the library.

Meanwhile, this term's edition of 'Economics Today' magazine is now available and can be read in the library - or you may be able to borrow my copy when I've finished with it. There are a number of excellent articles this time - including one on buffer stock systems and another on elasticity, both important parts of module 1.

Finally, here once again is the link to the website about personal statements that some of you have been asking me about:

Have a great weekend!
