Economics

Year 9 Overview for Economics      

Overview Autumn Term:
GCSE Economics offers students a great opportunity to learn about how every day individuals, organisations and governments are faced with making economic choices in terms of how best to use the limited amount of resources that they have available. Economics is a fascinating subject to study, which is not only well respected but also extremely relevant to the real world. In Year 9 students will get an introduction and will then learn about how firms compete and how the price mechanism allocates resources.

Overview Spring Term:
Students will learn how taxes and subsidies affect markets prices and the importance of elasticities. Students will also study minimum and maximum price levels, cost revenues and profits for firms and how they grow in size.

Overview Summer Term:
Students will understand that it is not possible to allocate all resources through the means of the price mechanism and in mixed economies the Government is responsible for delivering and allocating resources for the Health Service, Education, Defence and many other areas. Sometimes Government intervention is not always successful and this is addressed through case studies and discussion
