GSE Economics/Business/Free Enterprise 45.06100 GA
Economics is implicit in all societies and fundamental to our community structures. This course provides both a well-constructed framework as well as clear, engaging lessons and projects that will move students from concept to concept and eventually to a thorough understanding of how economics, both public and personal, business and free enterprise work in our local society and greater world.
This course gives students an excellent knowledge of how parties work interdependently with trade, currency, and incentives to affect both intended and unintended consequences. Students will understand the role of government, business, markets, consumers and producers; that scarcity of resources force parties to make choices that cost; and that they, themselves, have a significant role to play in the wider world of economics, business, and free enterprise. Finally, the projects will help students engage and integrate the overarching principles fundamental to economics including microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics, and personal finances.
