This course focuses on the financial concerns of the country, the business and the home. The free enterprise system will be explained and defended. We will study the laws of supply and demand, the circular flow of income and products, business competitions, unemployment, productivity, investments, and inflation. We will be covering a chapter per week; therefore, the textbook will be an essential part of each class, as well as weekly assignments. Grades will be based upon completion of homework, class participation, quizzes, and tests. There is no required paper in this class. There are extra credit opportunities which are optional.
