What's Included

Economics is all around us in the world we live in today. If you are intrigued by how the economy works, how individuals make decisions, or how firms maximize profit, Economics Challenge Club is perfect for you. In Economics Challenge Club, we will not only review AP Economics material, but we will learn more advanced (post-AP) economics topics as well, such as indifference curves, the economics of information (e.g. asymmetric information, adverse selection, moral hazard), game theory, behavioral economics, and much more. In addition, we will practice quiz bowl questions and do fun activities. The top four (or eight, depending on the size of the club) students will have the honor to represent BASIS in both the National Economics Challenge and the Harvard Pre-Collegiate Economics Challenge, which take place in the spring.

About This Organizer

Clubs & Activities are as vital as academic preparation to leading a fulfilling life. They promote physical and mental health, fostering social engagement and the development of leadership skills. At BASIS Independent McLean, we rely on students to both participate and to guide the offerings: first by inviting them to share their interests, and later by encouraging students to develop programs where they see a need.
