Economics

Aims

KS5

To quote famous economist Alfred Marshall, ‘Economics is a study of the economic aspects and conditions of man’s political, social and private life; but more especially of his social life. The aims of the study are to gain knowledge for its own sake, and to obtain guidance in the practical conduct of life, and especially of social life.’

Economics students will learn how, as individuals, households, firms and government, we get the things we want to buy and the services we need and want, making choices in order to satisfy our unlimited wants with scarce resources. They will gain a better understanding of the world around them as well as a qualification valued highly by all universities and employers.
