Government and Economics Description

This course will combine Economics and American Government. The Economics portion will include concepts of competition and market structure, freedom of choice, private ownership, profit and loss, personal finance, and Biblical financial principles. In American government, we will study the principles and mechanics of our Constitutional Republic, examine original source material, and review how a bill becomes a law. This course will be highly practical in scope as we discuss current events and their impact on our society.
