Why is something as superfluous as diamonds so costly, but something as essential as water so cheap? How can the cost of the coffee beans make up only a few cents of the price of a cup of coffee? With the world’s highest minimum wage rate, can Australia ever compete with low wage countries?
The ANU Bachelor of Economics provides a framework and a way of thinking to help answer questions like these. Students’ coursework will span economics (both theory and applied), economic history, and econometrics while developing their analytical problem-solving and quantitative skills. Whether working as an economist or in some other role, their Bachelor of Economics degree and training will be sought after.
