App Description

Economics 4 Students is an interactive way about learning Economics.

It contains learning materials divided into four sections: Markets, Macroeconomics, Business and Global.

It covers topics taught at schools and universities in Economics courses.

Topics are illustrated throughout and the majority of the diagrams are interactive. For example, you can use sliders to vary costs and price to watch how these variables impact on profits. Or you can alter cash flows and interest rates to see how these will impact on cash flows.
