IGCSE Economics (Edexcel 4EC1)
IGCSE Economics is a favourite amongst home educators. This subject is interesting, relevant, and is much more interesting than you might expect at first glance – a fantastic combination of Social Science and Business. This course covers why individuals, business, and Governments make the decisions that they do, when it comes to money, buying and selling. If you wonder about the answers to questions like “Does a minimum wage mean workers are actually better off?”, “Why do all petrol stations on one corner charge the same price for petrol?” or “Is Starbucks good or bad for the world’s economies?” then this course is for you!
Economics is a unique subject – a social science with a business and political leaning. This course is designed to give students a sound understanding of economics, and the ability to use knowledge, skills and understanding appropriately in the context of individual countries and the global economy. Economics is a great crossover with business, sociology and global development. Students will learn about monopolies, interest rates, exchange rates, tariffs, unemployment and a variety of key Economic topics highly relevant to their adult lives! Content areas: The Market System; Business Economics; Government and the Economy; The Global Economy.
