Level 2 Economics
Economics aims to teach students to understand how the NZ economy works together as a whole. This will be ideal preparation for students who wish to complete an economics degree, make decisions as to growth or expansion in their own business, or wish to find work in a variety of government or private businesses in NZ e.g. Treasury, Reserve Bank, Statistics NZ, Informetrics, or any of NZ’s major banks. The course encourages students to think critically about models that show how NZ works economically. They then need to apply those models to real life situations involving the issues of inflation, international trade, and economic growth.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
Students will learn the economic models used by government to deal with the possible effects of inflation, international trade, and economic growth. They will then discuss how the government could intervene in the NZ economy to minimise the negative effects of these issues. This will involve them putting together their own economic policies to deal with a real life situation in the NZ economy.
