Quantitative Easing or Quantitative Tightening? Mince Pies or Christmas Pudding?

We put some essential questions to Joshua Cheeseman, Vice President of Kent Invest Society.

‘Kent Invest have had a busy first term with the weekly meetings and socials. Most recently, we had a ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ social in Woolf which was great fun as everyone got to know each other outside of the meetings.

Our meetings have ranged from the fundamentals of investing and technical analysis to guest speakers. We are planning a couple more socials before we all break up for the winter holidays and encourage anyone to come, even if you don’t know a lot about investing.’

What the best thing about fully returning to campus this Term?

The best thing about returning to campus this term has definitely been meeting the new freshers and getting to know them more informally at the socials.

What’s your favourite part of Canterbury campus?

 The best place on campus is Dolce Vita. The chicken Katsu may actually be better than Wagamama!

What’s the best thing about living in Canterbury?

The fact that its a small city and that you can walk everywhere is a big benefit

What’s the most surprising thing you discovered in Stage 3 about Economics?

A surprising element of Stage 3 for me has been how good attendance has been in lectures, although I am expecting to see a small drop during the England world cup games

What’s the most relevant economic question right now and why?

For me, its when will the cost of living crisis stop or slow down?

What’s the best student society here at the University of Kent and why?

Easy question!  Kent Invest

Finally something for the festive season: Mince pies or Christmas Pudding?

Most definitely Mince pies.
