8.9.1 Program Information
The economy is important to all Canadians, and economics is the field of study that helps us understand our world: wages and employment, economic growth, productivity, wealth and poverty, government budgets and taxation, resource exploitation, business practices, inflation, recession, regional economic differences. In economics we study the history and current reality of these issues. We learn the principles and techniques necessary to gain a sound understanding of the choices and problems facing us during our lifetime.
