Level 2 Economics

2ECO
Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Browning

Ever imagined yourself in business? Going global? Investing, trading in currencies, making millions? Then 2 Economics is the course for you! We look at the what, why, and how of major economic issues facing New Zealand: inflation, unemployment, trade, growth, government policies, and how they affect us all. By the end of this course you’ll even understand what our political parties are talking about, and see it in action when (fingers crossed for no co-vid interruptions) we visit Wellington. Better yet, you’ll be able to make informed decisions about your own political views. All that in the wake of an election year – perfect!
