This post is part of an online course about political and economic behaviour in a world characterised by contradictions and a deluge of #mixedsignals. This is how it works:
- Watch/listen to the music videos in the post,
- Pick ONE of the reading recommendations,
- Reflect on the links between the post’s topic, the videos, and your chosen reading.
