Topics studied include: a. fundamental economic concepts, b. comparative economic systems, c. microeconomics, d. macroeconomics, and e. international economic relationships. Students learn to make reasoned decisions on economic issues as citizens, workers, consumers, business owners, and members of civil groups. In this final course, students add to economic understandings they acquired in previous courses and apply tools (such as graphing, statistics, and equations) learned in other subject fields.
