Level 2 Economics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Cowley

The standards offered in this course may be altered at the discretion of the Head of Department.

At Year 12 the focus is contemporary macro-economic issues. Students define and use statistical data to measure these issues. They use models to assist them in gaining an understanding of cause and effect. At this level, students will recognise the interdependent nature of the New Zealand economy by examining the impact government policies designed to address contemporary economic issues have on various groups in society. They will also understand that government policies may have unequal effects.
