EC220 Lecture Topics Michaelmas 2009 2009/2010 . This schedule is provisional because it is not possible to anticipate exactly how much time each topic will require. Each topic will be presented as a PowerPoint slideshow. The slideshows may be reviewed by going to the website for the course, econ.lse.ac.uk/courses/ec220, and clicking on the name of the slideshow. A menu asking you whether you wish to open the slideshow, or save it to disk, will appear. Choose open. (You may also save it if you wish.). This will launch PowerPoint. Then click on Slide Show on the menu at the top, and the View Show. Alternatively, click on the slideshow icon at the bottom of the screen, on the left. Narrative boxes have been added to the slideshows on the website to make them self-contained.
