Economics Level 1
Teacher in Charge: Mr Belton
This course is the first level of the nationally prescribed NCEA qualification in Economics. The course focuses on how consumers, producers and government interact in New Zealand’s economy. This interaction results in economic decisions about what, how and for whom private and public goods and services will be produced. The market, complemented by government choices, is fundamental to New Zealand’s economic system in the allocation of scarce resources, and students will understand the forces that effect their own economic participation in the economy.
