Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Milne

Economics is the study of how financial, labour and trade markets are organised and how they interact. In Level 2 Economics the focus is on four key areas; employment, growth, trade and policy. Employment looks at the present situation of employment in New Zealand and factors that may influence change. Growth focuses on the influence of the economy and what growth looks like. Trade develops ideas around how our economic activity will develop as our economy becomes more global. Policy looks at New Zealand’s economic situation and how we control inequality, unemployment and growth.
