Review of Economics for Everybody and a Great Deal from Educents

I will be the first to admit that I know very little about economics. I don’t much about personal economics- except how much money we do (or don’t) have in the bank. And I know almost nothing about corporate economics. It is definitely one of those topics I’ve been dreading covering in homeschool for high school. But for our state, there is a required 1/2 credit for economics.

I recently had the opportunity to review Economics for Everybody with R.C. Sproul Jr., and I am no longer worried about how I’ll handle this class.

Economics has always seemed rather dry to me. But when I watched the trailer for Economics for Everybody, I was intrigued.

 This actually made economics look fun!

And it was. The course has 12 videos lasting about 15-30 minutes each. There is a workbook that goes along with the videos. The workbook has an overview, an outline, and comprehension questions for each lesson. The videos are attention catching and often funny, but they are filled with plenty of information.

This course is a Christian based course, so Sproul begins with the concept that God owns everything. He constantly looks at economics in light of God’s Word and God’s plan. Using that foundational principle- that God owns everything, he looks at individual and corporate economics. There is information here about corporate and national economics as well as information on how to handle private finances.

My dad is a financial adviser and a Christian. I was very curious to know what he thought of this course. He hadn’t watched this particular course, but he was quite informed about R.C. Sproul Jr. and his teaching about finances. He was quick to recommend this and very enthusiastic about Sproul’s knowledge and philosophy of finance.

I’m excited to use these as our economics course. I plan on using it next year because both of my older kids will be high school aged, and they can complete the course together- watching the video together and completing the workbook on their own-  and each earn their half credit.

Right now Educents has a great deal on Economics for Everbody. You can get this complete course for $29.25. This is a great deal for a great economics course. Check it out at Educents.
