Economics at Greenshaw High School
Studying economics will enable you understand the complex world of business, finance, UK and international government policy and some of the other fundamental forces that affect our lives. Our aim is to equip you with a concrete understanding of competing economic theories and models. You will gain the knowledge and skill necessary to analyse relevant issues and take part in interesting discussions. So when you watch the news and hear ‘house prices fall to a 15 year low’, or ‘the value of the pound fell by 2% against the dollar’, you will understand why, how, and the effect it will have on our economy. It is not necessary for you to have studied economics before.
