Students will learn and be able to use economic thinking, problem-solving, and logic in solving business problems and analyzing current topics. This course emphasizes the role of free markets in determining economic well-being. Students will learn the fundamentals of microeconomics including supply, demand, and pricing, along with the basics of macroeconomics: Monetary Policy, Fiscal Policy, Money, Supply, and the role of government in stabilizing and growing an economy.
This course offers students the opportunity to apply what they learn through interactive projects and group assignments. As the world’s economies become increasingly interdependent, it is essential that students become economic thinkers. Using micro and macro-economic tools and concepts, students in this course will build the foundation necessary for understanding real-world economic issues. Students will understand the allocation of scarce resources in societies through analysis of individual choice, market interaction, and public policy. Units of study include Economic Thinking, Market Capitalism, The Business Cycle, Monetary policy, Fiscal Policy, and Global Markets.
The economic foundation built in this course will also enhance understanding of other social science disciplines, such as political science, geography, history, and sociology.
