'Introduction to Economics' a New Free Online Training Course from ALISON.com Announced

The free online skills training & certification provider ALISON.com is delighted to launch a new introductory course on Economics. It is the first website of its kind to offer free tutorials and certification on the study of the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services in the economy. Given the recent economic tumult, it is a timely course to aid comprehension of the complex forces at work in the economy.

Galway, Ireland, April 04, 2010 --(PR.com)-- This free online training course introduces the learner to the world of economics: the study of the production, distribution and consumption of scarce resources. Using an interactive presentation style, the lessons examine the economic forces at local, national and international level.

The course investigates a multitude of microeconomic topics including supply and demand and how these forces determine the price level in the market. The tutorials then explore macroeconomic topics on the level of national economies such as economic activity and its effect including inflation, employment and economic growth. The lessons also explore wealth and the role the government plays in distributing wealth in a fair and equitable way.

The course is a practical and timely introduction for those who want to understand how economies operate on a micro and macro-level. It is especially useful for those who wish to understand how economic agents act, the flux in economic markets and the complex underlying drivers of economic boom and bust. This course may help learners understand the recent global recession and the preceding economic surge. ALISON's ''Introduction to Economics'' is also a useful study aid to economic students who wish to revise for assignments, presentations or examinations.
