Economics A Level at East Norfolk Sixth Form College

Course description

Ever wondered why things cost what they do? Ever thought about the choices you make when you buy a product? Ever wondered why there is not enough to go round? Ever wondered why some people are richer than others? Then all this and more is covered in A-level economics.

Economics tries to understand how we try to match the unlimited wants that humans have with the limited resources the earth has. Economics explores how we can do this efficiently and fairly. Economics also considers whether we have achieved the right economic solutions to solve that problem. You will get the chance to debate this and to consider alternative policies and ideas.
