Features & benefits

It includes updated graphs, end-of-chapter summaries and review questions, and revised case studies of the economies of Brazil and Indonesia.

The text is divided into four topics, following the structure of the Year 12 Economics syllabus. Each topic is introduced by an overview page that includes the relevant focus, issues and skills for that topic, reflecting the syllabus objectives. This is followed by a clear introduction to each chapter within the topic. References to useful websites relevant to a particular area of study are included throughout the text.

Each chapter concludes with a ten-point chapter summary and chapter review questions. The chapter summary is a good starting point for students’ notes on each chapter, and the review questions are a great way to test their understanding of the chapter.

The comprehensive glossary at the back of the text provides a ready reference for over 350 key economic terms and concepts.

A unique and important feature of the text is its two appendices, located at the back of the book.

Appendix A: Key Economics Skills gives students the opportunity to master the 23 skills outlined in the year 12 Economics syllabus. The appendix covers three main areas: drawing and interpreting economic diagrams; equations and calculations; and interpreting economic data and information. By working through this material, students will develop and reinforce the key economic skills.

Appendix B: Advanced Economic Analysis provides extension material beyond the year 12 Economics Syllabus for students seeking an extra challenge.
