In Economics, we will focus on the study of human action as it relates to the exchange of goods and services.  Homeschoolers will study the balancing forces of supply and demand, production and labor, case studies in fiscal policy, the consumer and the corporation.  In addition homeschool students will become familiar with concepts such as foreign trade, the Federal Reserve System, and inflation.  We will also pay close attention to the way that specific American presidents have approached economic theory and policy and how their decisions have shaped the financial landscape of the country.
