Retail Lecture Slides
Please download and read the lecture slide files below. These links will become active as we go through the course: this means that you can download the slide file for each week as we get to that lecture in our course (and weeks we have not yet reached may not have content that is accessible here). Feel free to contact me if you have questions about any of these files.
