The economics area of Social Sciences Online provides curriculum and assessment information, resources, and useful links to support the teaching and learning of economic studies in years 11–13.

Economics is a social science, concerned with how people and groups use limited resources to produce goods and services to satisfy their unlimited wants and needs.

When we cannot have everything we want, we have to make choices. Economics provides us with a toolkit to make informed choices and better use of resources, especially those that are limited or scarce.
