Class Description

1 ½ hour,   15-week course (one semester)

In Exploring Economics, Ray Notgrass employs his narrative, conversational style to explain what economics means to the average person and its impact on their daily lives. Your student will take a fascinating and relevant guided tour through the world of economics to not only become a better steward but become informed on the economy on the personal, household, local, national, and international level. They will be amazed at the world of economics!

  • Students will study the biblical view of stewardship, wealth, and work as they learn about capitalism in a free market economy.
  • Competition, investment cycles, recession, inflation, supply and demand, and government influence upon economics are a few of the topics covered.
  • Ever hear the phrase, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch?” Students will learn why that is a true statement.
  • Students will enjoy lively discussion in the classroom as critical thinking skills are developed
