Economics

  • Course Description: Take a look around your room. Make a mental note of every object in the room. How did it get there? How did those goods transform from being natural resources in the ground to being objects in your room? Economics is the study of the systems of production and consumption that make our modern world possible. The course will explore economics on three scales: Personal Finance, Microeconomics (the way an economy works within a society) and Macroeconomics (the way the global economy works with the actions of countries).
