Young people need to be given information about the economy — from microeconomics, economy on an individual and local level, through to macroeconomics, examining the economy on a larger scale. Economics can cover a number of topics and includes themes such as the global economy, world GDP and fiscal policy.
Students can be shown how to examine the world economy from an economics perspective — for example, how a worldwide recession can lead to different types of unemployment. These are complex issues that affect each of us and they require understanding to enable students to explore, discuss and challenge so that they can form their own opinions and values.
