Level 2 Economics
Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Reddy
Level 2 Economics sees students examine the operation of the New Zealand economy through a Macro-economic perspective. Major issues covered will include Inflation, Economic Growth, Trade and Unemployment.
Students will learn how to define and measure changes in these issues and to create models to understand relevant causes and possible effects. For each economic issue, students will be asked to examine the effectiveness of possible government actions, including Fiscal and Monetary policy.
This course provides a foundation for further study at tertiary institutions and prepares students to work as an economist, statistician, policy analyst, and elected government representative. It also is a good one year course providing general educational skills for everyday living.
