Special Units

Learning to master your economic future is a juggling act you never truly master!

For the unit on Personal Finance/Economic Literacy we will be moving through the various aspects of this unit at different times in the course but all the material and the exercises are already listed if you want to go check them out. Some of the work we will do in class together, some you will have time in the library to do, and others you will complete on your own.

When we turn to international economics, we'll consider issues of poverty, development and global equality through the lens of microcredit.
