Welcome to Economics with Mr.Scorcia

Economics is about how individuals, governments, and business make choices. It involves an understanding of various economic concepts, models, and theories as well as an exploration of economic trends, policies, and practices. Through economic inquiry, you will develop your understanding of a range of economic issues, the interests and influence of different stakeholders, and the factors that influence the economic decisions of individuals and institutions.

I look forward to teaching and learning with you,

Good luck and have fun!
