Economics at Peter Symonds College

Course description

Economics is a subject that involves much discussion during lessons about current issues in the news. Theories are constructed to help our understanding of markets and economies. The subject is divided into two parts: Microeconomics is the study of individual markets and the behaviour of consumers and producers; and Macroeconomics is the study of the economy as a whole, including inflation, unemployment, economic growth and international trade. Economics complements most A-Level subjects as it develops both numeracy and literacy skills
