Cultivate Economic ThinkingMany students majoring in economics build on the groundwork gained from one or two introductory courses in the principles of economics, learning about ideas developed by economists and investigating current issues. Some degree programs for related disciplines, such as environmental science, government, public policy, and social studies, require students to take introductory economics as a foundational course.
Gale Researcher provides articles and supplemental materials (i.e. charts, graphs, illustrations, pictures, videos, etc.) to help students become familiar with basic economic principles and gain the initial knowledge needed to understand how an economy works.
Topical Coverage Includes
- Economic Principles of Supply and Demand
- Economic Systems
- Econometrics and Forecasting
- Keynesian Economics
- Labor Economics
- Recessions and Depressions
- Economic Development
- Fiscal and Monetary Policy Game Theory and Behavioral Economics
