The study of economics helps students to understand the human world through enquiring into how resources are used to serve individuals and society. It also contributes to the development of critical thinking and decision-making skills, which are crucial for the all-round development of students and, in particular, their development as life-long learners and responsible citizens.



Knowledge and understanding

Students will develop knowledge and understanding about:

  • economic terminology and concepts, as well as elementary economic theories;
  • basic economic problems faced by every individual and society, and alternative approaches to tackling these problems;
  • the considerations and forces underlying the economic decisions that need to be taken by individuals, firms, institutions and governments;
  • the interactions of different economic sectors; and
  • the Hong Kong economy and its relationship with the economies of other parts of the nation and the world.


Students will develop skills to:

  • interpret economic information presented in verbal, numerical or graphical form;
  • apply their economic knowledge to a variety of problems and issues in a range of economic contexts;
  • analyse information through the use of economic concepts and theories;
  • evaluate information, arguments, proposals and policies from different economic perspectives and make informed judgements; and
  • communicate economic ideas and informed judgements, in a clear, logical and  appropriate form.

Values and attitudes

Students will develop values and attitudes so that they may:

  • participate as informed persons in the discussion of economic issues and decision making; and
  • become active and responsible citizens and contribute to the well-being of the local community, the nation and the world.
