Economics at Shaftesbury School
If you were to ask the question, “what is interesting about this course?”, it is a difficult question for a teacher to answer, and so here follow some quotes from students: “Group discussions about economic affairs are stimulating”; “An interesting element is the variety of economic and public issues discussed”; “Even writing an essay about economic systems after research was interesting”; “We have many discussions about fairness and equality”. What issues, then, will be addressed in the Economics course? The answer is very many, some of which are inflation, unemployment, international trade, financial institutions, consumer decision making, government objectives, production decisions, environmental issues, third world problems.
