Business 151

Intro to business starts off with chapter one, the world of business. It decribes the types of business, inputs into a firm, GDP, the business cycle and types of competition. This is a first level class, and so far the first week has been stuff from year 11-13 economics.

As you get towards the end of the chapter, there is a whole section on 19th and 20th century Business in America. Are you sure thats the WORLD of Business? So I had to brush up on a some federal laws but Im sorted now. Thanks to Roosevelt in the 1930s, the economy recovered well after the depression. Great news.
There was a 'pop quiz' last week. 10/10 thank you. 8.5/10 for participation ie putting your hand up. Good start, but since the class is out of a total 1000 points (with 50-75 extra credit!) there is only 980 points to go.
