ECONOMICS

Economics Level 1 - From Cape Reinga to Bluff

What will I learn?

Go on a journey through the regions of Aotearoa, New Zealand. On this journey, you will find out about the significance of each region in terms of:

  • resources

  • employment

  • trade

At this level, students will recognise the interdependent nature of the New Zealand economy by examining the impact of government policies designed to address contemporary economic issues on various groups in society. They will also develop an understanding of the nature of government policies potentially having unequal effects. You will learn to use economic models to explain the changes you are exploring. Analysing news headlines and government decisions will also be a key part of the course.
