Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course teach students about trends occurring within the American economy. And these aren't the typical "if customers start going to Store A, then, Store B loses profit" situations. It's more in-depth and goes more like this: What's the difference between elastic and inelastic demand? Does a sole proprietor find it easier having full liability than partial? What are the five indicators that reveal an economy's status? These are the kinds of questions that will pop up throughout the course. And it's important that students get an understanding of how our economy works. Many people are in adulthood unaware of how their money is handled, how interest ties people in forever, or even the those little fine line prints you see in banking statements that ACTUALLY contain valuable information that's always looked over. This class is valuable and worthwhile and I cannot stress this enough!
Understanding the basics of interest, calculating APR (Annual Percentage Rate), types of workers in the workforce (unskilled workers, semi-skilled workers, skilled workers, professionals), five economic indicators to keep tabs on (income, employment, consumer price index, retail sales, and community pricing)

Advice for students:
Do pay attention from the beginning as it's real easy to get lost. Yeah, I know, it's a cliche but its the goshdarn truth!
