Economics A-Level *FEES PAYABLE* at St Mary's Senior School

Course description

Aims of the Course • To develop a secure understanding of a range of economic ideas. • To explore how economic ideas can be used to illuminate issues in everyday life. • To solve economic problems by analysing a range of possible solutions and evaluating their relative merits. • To develop a wide range of skills that will be a great asset in a rapidly changing world. Economics is all around us and it dominates and shapes our daily lives, whether we are aware of it or not. As economists, we are intrigued why people act the way they do and we try to understand the decisions that people make. We examine how all these little decisions, made by individuals, add up to make huge changes in the world. We seek to understand the world in order to be able to solve its problems.
