Economics at The Sixth Form College Colchester
Economics looks at hoe societies deal with scarcity of resources and the role of goverbment in dealing with the economic problems that stem from this. Microeconomics considers the rationale behind the behaviour of consumers and firms, whilst macroeconomics investigates issues such as inflation, unemployment and international trade. Students will apply economic theories and concept to current issues such as austerity, the EU financial crisis, financial markets, global warming, globalisation and the growing inequality in modern economies.
