Economic Workbook and Data presents topics that correspond to the syllabuses for the General Certificate of Education at A level as well as general economic courses at universities. This book aims to introduce students to facts and to encourage them to deliberate in numbers. Organized into two parts, this book begins with questions that can serve as basis for group discussion or as subjects for essays, which are grouped under distinct headings that cover the study of national income, population, consumption, distribution, and production. This text then covers finance and the role of the government in the national economy. Other chapters consider the statistical material for a certain number of countries. The final chapter provides a compilation of tables to match the questions in Part 1 to aid students at a junior level. This book is a valuable resource for students who are in their last years at school and first year at university.
