NCEA Level 1 Economics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr T. Tinworth

Economics is the study of how limited resources such as land, labour and capital are used to provide the goods and services we use in our everyday lives. The course focuses on how different sectors of the economy such as households, firms and the government interact.
Students will learn about the interrelationships between different groups and the economic decisions that need to be made by those groups such as: how to spend your income, what goods and services to produce, and how much tax should the government charges. From this course students will be able to better understand their place in the New Zealand economy.
