One-semester course, grade level 12 Prerequisite: None
This course is an introduction to the foundations and methods of economics. Economics is the study of how people choose to use their limited resources to produce, exchange and consume goods and services and how these scarce resources are allocated among competing ends. The course will examine the characteristics of different economic systems, the essential component of private property in a free-market environment, the role of government in the economy of the United States and the effects of international trade and development on our lives. The course is based on the national and Arizona State Social Studies Standards for Economics.
