Economics is the study of how the world works!  Economics is literally everywhere, and you cannot get away from it.  Why do people have to earn a living?  What determines the price of a Big Mac or an iPod?  Why do you choose to buy a can of Coke over Pepsi?  Whenever you have to deal with money or prices, you are talking about economics!  This class combines a real-world perspective and a hands-on approach to learning about how the “almighty dollar” influences everyday decisions in your life and community.  Students will examine a variety of basic economic concepts and investigate current issues related to economics.
