Course Description

Economics is an inherent part of our world. In fact, with every passing day, economics becomes more and more pivotal to our survival. From the items we buy at the store, our personal banking accounts, the types of industries in which we work and the resources governments employ to sustain our communities, we are surrounded by economically-based challenges on a daily basis.

With this course, our goal is to equip you with a working understanding of economics and its myriad of business and personal applications. As such, we have crafted an easy-to-understand course comprised of economic's principle tenets while specifically highlighting such central ideas as: supply and demand, interest rates and inflation.

True, economics can be a complex subject. Yet it remains highly pertinent to our modern-day lives. From gaining a sense of the forces that drive the economy to understanding how statistical and economics come together to forecast future monetary trends, this course offers a great deal of valuable information for both business and personal purposes.

Knowing what economics is and how it operates has a wide-range of benefits from the practical--why we pay taxes--to the more lucrative possibilities--such as tips for investing within the money markets.
