Socioeconomics: Local and Global Perspectives
Socio-economics: Local and Global Perspectives aims to deepen students’ understanding of human behaviour in both the public and private spheres. In exploring the intersection of sociology and economics, the book delves into topics such as private and government wealth, class, inequality, and society’s overall satisfaction with life. Students will also learn how social issues are addressed by policy and market-related activities, and which measures are taken to uplift those who have the least satisfaction in life. Additionally, the book will unpack important topics related to politics and the economy, and will explore the psychology of economic behaviour and labour. Important questions about land reform, terrorism and community crime will also be addressed. As such, students will come to understand how socio-economic factors and human behaviour relate to, and mutually influence, one another.
