Economics, the Enterprise System, and Finance.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
The core curriculum for economics, the enterprise system, and finance supports the New York State Education Department's efforts to raise standards in social studies by focusing on Standard 4: Economics, in the "Learning Standards for Social Studies." This core curriculum reinforces the key ideas and performance indicators for this standard and describes what students should know and achieve in their study of economics and economic decision making. It outlines the content, concepts, and skills that students should understand and apply throughout their lives. This guide is intended to be used to meet the curriculum mandate of the New York Board of Regents that requires all students to complete a half-unit course of study in economics or its equivalent as part of their for unit social studies requirement. The guide is divided into eleven parts: (1) "Foreword"; (2) "Introduction"; (3) "National Voluntary Standards for Teaching Economics"; (4) "Jump$tart Coalition Personal Financial Management Guidelines"; (5) "I. Living in a Global Economy"; (6) "II. The United States Economic System"; (7) "III. The Enterprise System and the United States Economy"; (8) "IV. Labor and Business in the United States"; (9) "V. Money, Finance, and Personal Finance"; (10) "VI. Making Fiscal and Monetary Policy"; and (11) "VII. Impact of Globalization on the Economics of Other Nations." (BT)
