This Quinmester course on money and banking, part of the political and economic studies cluster for grades 10, 11, and 12, aims at examining the nature, role and scope of money in a capitalistic economy. Emphasis is placed upon understanding the operation of government policies affecting banking, with its subsequent influences on our national economy. Purposes of the course are to facilitate student development of a personal value system, develop sound decision-making procedures on this value system, examine the principles upon which money and banking function as an institution in a capitalistic economy, and identify the inter-related effects of government policy and banking operations on the American economy. The eight topics in the course outline are the American economy, money, taxation, government spending, banking, the Federal Reserve System, economic fluctuation, and American economic policy. This course is arranged, as are other Quinmester courses, with sections on broad goals, course content, activities, and materials. (Author/KSM)
