Level 3 Economics
Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Browning
Looking ahead to a career in business, finance, or government policy? Aiming for a degree/diploma in Commerce? Then 3 Economics will give you the advantage you need! In this course we look at market forces, consumer choice, and the decision-making of firms. We also look at market failure and the role of government in our economy. If that all sounds like a foreign language to you, don’t worry: by the end of the course it won’t. You’ll be able to interpret and comment on current economic issues, explain your economic thinking logically and clearly, and maybe even run for Prime Minister ;)
