Course Description: Students need to study economics so that they can understand the economic issues facing the world today and be prepared for future careers. The BJU Press Economics curriculum is a one-semester course that teaches economic principles from a conservative approach. The curriculum deals with economic models, the stock market, banking, fiscal policy, economics theorists, and more from a biblical perspective. Each chapter contains information about personal finances and encourages a biblical view of stewardship. Throughout the text, students are encouraged to think critically about economic issues. Students will also further their personal finance study using concepts introduced in Dave Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance.
