Course Content

My EconoMe is an introductory workshop about how the economy works and how it affects you and me.

Have you ever wondered what the role of the government is? Why do you have to pay taxes? Where does the government get money to build roads, bridges, schools and pay for benefits? And why my spending, acquiring debt and saving can impact me and others? My EconoMe is a fun, rule of thumb, layman, jargon-free [ok less jargon] and non-academic understanding of basic Economics.

This is a good complementary and foundational course to financial literacy [UNLEASH] and social responsibility [SOAR] for young people. This course combines social responsibility, citizenship and consumer literacy.

Why is My EconoMe relevant to young people? 

By widening the learning experiences of young people, they develop interest, curiosity and understanding about how society is organised, the world around them and their role and responsibilities as citizens and consumers. This course can open opportunities to pursue an interest in economics, finance and investment or social development as a career choice or a bright future that young people can carve out for themselves.

  • Government
  • Citizen
