Economics

The Economics Curriculum at The Beekman School

This is a required one-semester course.  In it we will study basic types of economic systems, how they intersect with government, and how they affect the people who live under them.  Specifically, we will focus on the U.S. economy by looking at the two main branches: macroeconomics and microeconomics.  This course should also provide a framework to understand news reports and politicians when they speak about inflation, the GNP, trusts, globalization, investments, balance of trade, taxes, etc.

Even if you don’t agree with Marx’s viewpoint that money dictates every aspect of our lives, it is true that money is inextricably tied to them.  Whether in terms of a business involvement, your own wallet, or the government, understanding how these decisions are made and how they affect you is an indispensable undertaking.

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
