    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This Class was a great start to understanding the complex topic of economics. The teacher is great at explaining in-depth on the tougher subjects and has a great attitude towards the students that struggle at times.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned a lot about basic economics, it helped me a lot in my other classes by simply having some general knowledge of term and overall ideas.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take it in a classroom setting take lots of notes on his lectures, they are much easier to study off of than reading the text book and always take the practice tests.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Josephson is an excellent teacher! Highly competent and enthusiastic about the course material; he additionally relates concepts to relevant events in our country and worldwide economies. Mr. Josephson is also completely willing to work with students outside of class hours to help prepare for exams/gain better understanding of the subject! If you're expecting economics to be dull, it's a self-fulfilling prophecy, but open-minded students will be intrigued and motivated to take this class and finish the quarter having actually learned important functions about the economy!

    Course highlights:

    This course gives a general overview of the basic concepts of economics, microeconomics, and macroeconomics. In the first few weeks of this course you can expect to learn how economists study the economy, specialization and trade, supply and demand, and market efficiency. The next section of the course focuses on microeconomics, which covers the subtopics of the business structure (costs, production, profits and losses), competitive markets and monopolies, forces in the labor market, and the government's role in the economy. Lastly, macroeconomics will cover the study of the economy at the national level, specifically: unemployment, inflation, GDP, how an economy grows, the federal reserve and monetary policies, budget deficits and taxation, and the effects of tariffs and exchange rates on the international economy. HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS COURSE: make sure you understand supply and demand! It forms the basis for almost every other topic; there will also be a lot of graphs and graph-interpreting involved in economics, but somehow not a lot of math.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the textbook! I recommend getting the ebook version so that you can find keywords 5X as fast compared to eternally flipping through pages; most homework is online so an ebook will make that easier. You CANNOT pass this class if you don't do the homework or continuously skip classes. Mr. Josephson is generous to hard-workers and ruthless to slackers! This class is tough but fun, thought-provoking, and worthwhile!
