Economics is the social science that describes the factors that determine production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. It focuses on the behaviour and interactions of economic agents, and how economies work.

If you are interested in financial markets and the economy, you are in the right place! Whether you want to know the latest national and international developments or consult the most recent economic and financial forecasts, this workshop is for you. This new stream deals with economic activities such as consumer spending, exchange rates, housing markets, gross domestic product, GDP per capita, GNP, the stock market, interest rates, government debt, rate of inflation, unemployment, and balance of trade.
