Synopsis

Economics gives you the language and techniques to understand the world of money and finance, of employment, economic growth and international trade. You will need to get used to dealing with the specialist language of economics but you also need to be able to apply it to real life events. This course will enable you to do this comprehensively but you will also find it useful to keep up to date by reading newspapers, journals such as "The Economist" and by watching or listening to specialist programmes on radio and television. Your tutor will be able to recommend which sources are of value.

Economics has a large amount of new terminology. You will need to be able to recognise and understand economic terms when you meet them and also to apply them to real life situations. Some of these words are used in ordinary language, but in a quite different way in economics. For example the word "scarce" in general English means there isn't very much of something available. In Economics the same term means that something is limited in supply. You will also need to remember diagrams such as graphs and Gantt charts that explain economics It is important to label your axes correctly and to be able to explain the diagrams in your own language. You may find it helpful to put your definitions and diagrams on index cards or the clipped together revision cards you can buy in a stationery shop.

The lessons have been arranged to follow ten modules, but to provide for ease of understanding and topic coverage these may be of different length and difficulty. The modules have been organised to provide students with what has been considered the best sequence to develop a sound, progressive knowledge of Economics. At the end of each module there is exam preparation to complete to help prepare the student for the final examination. Some of the modules have references to carefully selected websites to provide you with further practice, summaries and examples of topics covered in the lesson.


The course consists of the following ten modules:
Module 1

The Economic Problem and the Production Possibility Frontier / Demand and Supply Analysis. This deals with why everybody wants to receive more and pay less and how that conundrum can be addressed.


Module 2

Market Failure / Government Intervention and Government Failure. What happens when a market collapses? Interestingly I am writing this text on the anniversary of the 1929 Wall Street Crash! What have we learnt since 29 October 1929?


Module 3

Introducing Macroeconomics and Measuring the Economy. Macro Economics is dealing with the large issues of economics.


Module 4

Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply. When does supply = demand? What happens when it does not?


Module 5

Economic Growth. Is growth always a good thing? What is growth? Are there more important priorities?


Module 6

Government Intervention and Constraints. How free is a free market? Should a free market system allow companies to fail?


Module 7

The Firm, Objectives, Growth, Revenue and Costs / Firms and the Market. What is a firm? how do they operate?


Module 8

Competition / Government Intervention Is a company ever too large, too important or too strategic to be allowed to fail? Is it more important to produce food than any other commodity? If so is it a duty of a government to compel people to produce food or to subsidise food production?


Module 9

Globalisation and Patterns of Trade / How International Trade is Recorded and Financed. The new dimension to trade which has developed as a result of the globalisation of world trade. What challenges are posed by having the whole world as your market?


Module 10

Growth and Development / The Role of Government. Again is it part of the role of a government to ensure that the economy of the nation grows and continues to grow? Who are the winners, and whom the losers from such growth?


You can also contact your tutor if you feel you need more practice in any of the topics covered in this course.
