This course examines current Canadian and international economic issues, developments, policies, and practices from diverse perspectives. Students will explore the decisions that individuals and institutions, including governments, make in response to economic issues such as globalization, trade agreements, economic inequalities, regulation, and public spending. Students will apply the concepts of economic thinking and the economic inquiry process, as well as economic models and theories, to investigate, and develop informed opinions about, economic trade-offs, growth, and sustainability and related economic issues.
Students will develop ways of thinking about economics through the application of these concepts and will use the economic inquiry process as they gather, interpret, and analyze data and information relating to issues of economic importance. Students will make informed judgements and draw conclusions about local, national, and global economic issues.
