Economics and Finance Lessons
Lessons and worksheets for teaching, learning, and understanding elementary and basic economics and financial concepts and principles.
Economics is all about making choices. Every day, we make many choices. Many people think that economics is about money when they hear it. Economics is more than money. Economics is about choosing between different options or alternatives. While some of these important decisions involve money, most don't. While most of your life decisions have little to no connection with money, they still fall under the umbrella of economics. Money is often a useful tool, that can be used to help you evaluate the things you care about and make decisions about them. Economics is about understanding why we make certain choices that seem to be the most economical or efficient.
