Why Economics?

Posted by shartley13 on October 3, 2011

Before I started Economics as an HSC course, I hadn’t really heard of studying it. I didn’t have much knowledge of what it included, but everyone I spoke to said they thought I would enjoy it. I started Preliminary Economics in Year 10 after I was no longer able to do the Stage 5 course Commerce. I enjoyed Commerce immensely and was excited to extend myself through studying Economics.

I now study Economics because I find it incredibly interesting and because it gives me a deeper understanding of what is happening in the world. I can watch the news and listen to them talk about exchange rates, actually understanding what they are talking about! I think that having knowledge about Economics will help me in decision making in the future, in regards to investments and finances, and if I end up in a career path involving Economics.

Economics is a subject that you can clearly see affecting the world around you and how it impacts you. It isn’t a subject that you would say “when am I going to need this?” you can clearly see that the information you learn will be useful later on.

Thus, I am studying Economics for the HSC because I enjoy it, because it allows me to understand things that are happening in the world around me and because I also think that it will be useful later on in life.

Why am I doing Economics for the HSC?

Why am I doing Economics for the HSC?

Initially, I chose economics as the online work side of it was attractive. I didn’t really think about what the subject actually taught and just went along with it. However, as the course progressed in year 11 I began to like it more and decided that I was going to carry it through to the HSC. I am doing Economics as it gives me the appropriate information to be able to win arguments with friends and family on issues such as overseas economies and Government policies. The course also gives me the knowledge to be able to better understand current issues in the news such as Government policies and have a better knowledge on how it will affect me immediately and in the future.

I am studying economics for the HSC because…

Posted by shartley13 on October 3, 2011

I am studying economics for the HSC because I want to have that little bit of extra knowledge when it comes to the economy. I have always been interested in money so I want to know the role it has in an economy and how it flows. I also did it to coincide with business studies because they are similar in certain areas of the way in which an economy runs.

Why did I choose Economics?

Posted by shartley13 on September 9, 2010

I am studying economics for the HSC because I enjoy the subject and it has taught me how the economy can be controlled in various ways. Understanding how economies work will be very useful in future careers as both micro and macro economics have given me insight into forces of demand and supply in industry and has helped me to understand how government intervention can lead to either an increase or decrease in economic activity.

Why did I choose Economics?

Posted by shartley13 on August 27, 2010

I chose to do Economics in Year 12 for several reasons:

  • I was doing better at Economics than Physics in Year 11
  • I enjoy the theory and thought behind the mechanics of economies
  • I believe that the knowledge that economics provides is useful in the real world, even if I enter into an unrelated career, which will likely be the case.
  • It allows for me to make informed decisions when it comes time for me to vote in an election.
