Who is the series for?
Although we like to say it’s for everybody, we did have a few particular audiences in mind. For instance, small groups wanting to go through a unique series; or families with middle school kids and older; then middle or high school students either in traditional schools or homeschools; and, finally, any adult who wants to understand what economics is all about (in a fun and engaging way, of course).
Can I get High School Credit for the series?
Yes. If you’re a homeschool student and want to use Economics for Everybody as an economics class, we recommend you also use Basic Economics, 3rd Edition along with the series. Our study book provides chapter references at the end of each lesson. We will also be providing a free PDF in early September with a complete scope and sequence as well as tests. If you follow this course for 12 weeks at approximately 5 hours a week (which includes watching the video, working through the Study Guide, reading corresponding textbook chapters, and completing some testing), the class is worth a half credit in economics for one semester. The following semester, if you finish working through those parts of Basic Economics not covered in the series, you can earn a full credit. (Upper level high school students may use Foundations of Economics: A Christian View instead, but it is geared for a college/adult audience.)

How long are the lessons?
Lessons 1-5 are under 20 minutes, Lessons 6-11 range from 20 to 27 minutes, and Lesson 12 is 15 minutes. As the lessons dig deeper into economic applications, they get longer in order to cover the material.
What is included in the Study Book?
The 250p Study Book includes an expanded outline of each lesson with additional material not included in the lessons; it also includes related Bible readings, discussion questions, short answer questions, and multiple-choice questions. Finally, it includes a listing of all the sources used in the series.
Are there any other books you’d recommend?
Lots. You can find a list of them on our Resources page.
