    Don't worry the applicant : place ratios are pretty misleading, they give out about 4 times as many offers as places

    The funny side to economics

    1. You can talk about money without every having to make any.

    2. Mick Jagger and Arnold Schwarzenegger both studied economics and look how they turned out.

    3. When you are in the unemployment line, at least you will know why you are there.

    4. If you rearrange the letters in "ECONOMICS", you get "COMIC NOSE".

    5. Although ethics teaches that virtue is its own reward, in economics we get taught that reward is its own virtue.

    6. When you get drunk, you can tell everyone that you are just researching the law of diminishing marginal utility.

    7. You can't be wrong; only subject to an unexpected asymmetric shock.

    8. An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn't happen today.

    When Albert Einstein died, he met three New Zealanders in the queue outside the Pearly Gates. To pass the time, he asked what were their IQs. The first replied 190. "Wonderful," exclaimed Einstein. "We can discuss the contribution made by Ernest Rutherford to atomic physics and my theory of general relativity". The second answered 150. "Good," said Einstein. "I look forward to discussing the role of New Zealand's nuclear-free legislation in the quest for world peace". The third New Zealander mumbled 50. Einstein paused, and then asked, "So what is your forecast for the budget deficit next year?"

    Q: How many conservative economists does it take to change a light bulb?

    A1: None. The darkness will cause the light bulb to change by itself.

    A2: None. If it really needed changing, market forces would have caused it to happen.

    A3: None. If the government would just leave it alone, it would screw itself in.

    A4. None. "There is no need to change the light bulb. All the conditions for illumination are in place.

    A5. None, because, look! It's getting brighter! It's definitely getting brighter !!!

    Q; How many central bank economists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    A: Just one -- he holds the lightbulb and the whole earth revolves around him. Economists do it with models

    I was wondering how Birmingham's economics course is viewed. As a University I am aware that it is well respected, but the TAELT (I know its a little outdated) suggests that Birmingham isn't a great uni for economics. Basically, I'd like to know any further info on Birmingham's course and the relative job prospects one can expect if I studied at Birmingham - please note I am not interested in investment banking. Finally, I'd like to know the relative gap in reputation, and ultimately quality, between Birmingham's economics course and unis such as Bristol and Notts (who i'm also applying to). Truthfully the fee rise means it may be too expensive for me to live away, however if Birmingham isnt as well regarded by employers then that is the cost I may have to take. Any info and help would be appreciated, thanks

    That's what student finance is for though... If it was an upfront cost hardly anyone could afford to go!
