Level 2 Economics
Teacher in Charge: Mrs N. Bastion
Internal Credits: 10 External Credits: 8
The emphasis at this level is on the issues that result from market forces. These are inflation, trade and economic growth. This course will enable you to define and measure these issues as well as understand their causes and possible effects. You will also develop an awareness of the policies that governments may implement to address the issues. This course also helps you to understand the interdependent nature of the economy by examining the impact government policies have on various groups and to appreciate that these may have unequal consequences.
Level 1 Numeracy and Literacy are a pre-requisite of this course. Study of Economics at Year 11 would be an advantage but is not essential.
