Economics at Teddington School
Should we be spending money on hospitals or the armed forces? How should we reduce the level of UK debt? Should the wealthy be paying higher taxes? Why do footballers earn up to £200,000 per week and qualified nurses only £25,000 per year? Should we adopt minimum pricing on alcohol? How can we reduce traffic congestion? How will the continued growth of China and India affect UK citizens? Economics touches every aspect of people’s daily lives. It is continually discussed in the newspapers and on television. If these type of questions intrigue you then A level Economics awaits.
