Economics for EverybodyHot
Economics: it’s everywhere, influencing everything — and so rarely understood.
Economics for Everybody seeks to remedy that through an insightful and entertaining exploration of the principles, practices, and consequences of economics. Thoroughly unconventional, this church, family, and homeschool economics curriculum links entrepreneurship with lemonade, cartoons with markets, and Charlie Chaplin with supply and demand.
If you’re confused about teaching economics, or are just looking for a great homeschool economics curriculum, this is the place to begin. It not only explains how economics works, it shows how economic freedom is directly related to religious freedom; it explores the differences between socialism, interventionism, and free markets; and it explains how stewardship is at the heart of a healthy economic system.
I don't believe there is enough here to fulfill the 1/2 credit Economics requirement for high school IMO, but this did really help our co-op students understand the concepts presented. I appreciated the Biblical context with which each topic was presented. The pace was a bit fast but following up with the book helped solidify what was taught. We used it in our co-op to supplement an economics class. The kids enjoyed it and it was a good springboard for further discussion.
I liked the approach of economics through a Biblical lens. The material is written clearly and would be easy for an independent learner to follow. My daughter required help due to a learning delay, but was able to work through the book.
