This one-semester high school elective will help students to understand the economic terms and issues that have an impact on the United States and US citizens. Emphasizing faith in God and trusting His Word, students will survey Biblical teachings on money and finance, read an overview of the economic history of the United States, discuss economic issues confronting us today, and look at national and world economies on a personal level. Exploring Economics reasserts the importance of the free market system, providing a clear explanation of terms and concepts.
Students will read 75 lessons, as well as a collection of essays in the included reader The Stewardship of God's Riches. Most lessons feature a reading assignment, a writing assignment or an Econ Lab, which allows the student to get a practical perspective on the material being studied.
Unit 1 gets a grasp on economics. Units 2 and 3 talk about God’s economic principles found in the Old Testament and in the early church. Unit 4 is a brief economic history of the United States. The remaining eleven units apply these basic concepts to making choices, markets, money, trade, business, labor, government, economic measurements, and other important related topics, putting our participation in the national and world economies on a personal level. This course introduces both microeconomics and macroeconomics, and is written from a perspective of faith in God and trust in His word, reasserting the importance of the free market system.
There is an optional, accompanying collection of essays on sound economic principles called The Stewardship of God’s Riches, along with a quiz and exam booklet to insure that the reader is comprehending the terms and principles, and an answer key. The curriculum should well prepare the student for college economics. Economics is not always an easy subject for many children to grasp in the first place, and we live in a time when economic activity is challenging classic definitions. Perhaps if more young people studied Exploring Economics, we might not be so prone to elect leaders who would abandon good economic practices and send our economy down a perilous path towards possible destruction.
It covers the history of economics and biblical economics, as well as principles/abbreviations/concepts you would learn about in Macroeconomics and Microeconomics in college.
My daughter loved it so much that she wants to major in Economics (and Statistics) in college.
