Subject Description Economics is the study of human behaviour and in particular the choices that individuals, businesses and governments make to deal with scarcity and the incentives that guide those choices. In Business Economics you will learn how the forces of demand and supply coordinate the behaviour of individuals and businesses in the market and how government policy affects those market outcomes. You will study the decisions that businesses make in determining how much to produce and at what cost. Further you will investigate how the market structure affects firms’ choices. At the macro level, you will explain how to measure economic activity, including levels of inflation and unemployment, and you will examine some of the factors that influence these variables and the impact they have on business.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to:
1 Represent and explain fundamental economics concepts using text, diagrams, equations and other media.

Assessment details
In Class Exercises
Over the course of the trimester eight in class exercises will be assessed, with the best six results contributing to a mark out of 20.
Group Assignment
The group assignment is to be submitted through Turnitin.
Intended Learning Outcomes: 
  1. Explain how prices are determined and predict the effects of changes in market conditions on prices and quantities of goods and services.
  2. Critically analyse in writing the impacts of government policy and external shocks on markets, using a range of scholarly and news media sources.
Purpose and aim:
The purpose of this assessment is to bring together the skills and knowledge to describe the characteristics of an industry and illustrate graphically the outcome of an external shock or change in government policy. This assessment requires students to actively engage and work collaboratively with a diverse range of students to be able to understand the perspectives of others. Students are required to form into groups of 3 or 4 within their allocated workshops.
Description of assessment:
The group’s task is to prepare a 1,000 word market report on a particular industry.  Examples include health care, transportation, travel, leisure, hospitality, recreation, retail & consumer goods, financial services, education, energy resources, minerals, media, entertainment, food and agriculture and telecommunications.
The market report should, as a minimum, include:
  • a description of the industry;
  • an examination of the factors that influence supply and demand for the product(s) or service(s),
  • an analysis of whether the demand for the good(s) or service(s) is elastic or inelastic, and why;
  • illustrate with a diagram and explain in words the impact of a recent shock to this market (Hint: this could be a change in government policy or other external change);
This report should provide useful information for a business owner in this industry. It should include a table of contents, sub-headings and be properly referenced using the Harvard method.
Sources (references)
It is expected that the market report uses a range of resources (e.g. the text book, newspapers, industry reports, the ABS and other sources). The Lib guide on the LMS provides useful links to industry reports, the ABS statistics and also information on referencing using the Harvard style.
The market report will:
  • Be less than 1,000 words.
  • Include a title, introduction and conclusion.
  • Include correctly labelled diagram where appropriate, not hand drawn.
  • Be word processed in 12 point font at 1.5 spacing.
  • Be properly referenced using the Harvard style.
  • Be submitted via Turnitin on the due date with the details of all group members.
Grading process
Each student in the group will receive the same mark for this assignment. In some circumstances the class facilitator may adjust the allocation of marks in line with individual contributions to the assignment. These adjustments will be at the discretion of the facilitator.

Special Consideration and Deferred Assessment
Special consideration may be provided when a student completes a piece of assessment (for example a class test, assignment or an examination) and the student believes there have been adverse circumstances affecting their performance. Deferred assessment (including deferred examinations) is for circumstances which prevent you from sitting an assessment task.
Applications for special consideration will be accepted on medical grounds or under compassionate or compelling circumstances.  Examples of such circumstances include:
·         serious illness or psychological condition causing a hospital admission, a serious injury, severe asthma, severe anxiety or depression;
·         loss or bereavement due to the death of a family member or a family relationship breakdown;
·         hardship or trauma caused for example, by being a victim of crime or involved in a natural disaster.
Original documentary evidence from a registered practitioner and clearly stating the specific reason(s) for the application must be provided if the special consideration is based on medical reasons.  The documentary evidence must be dated and cover the time period referred to in the application. Backdated medical certificates will not be accepted.
Applications for Special Consideration will be accepted on the Special Consideration Application form and must be submitted to La Trobe Melbourne no more than 72 hours after the piece of assessment was due for submission or the test was sat. The special consideration form is available on the portal Students>>Documents>>Forms>>Special Consideration.pdf
Backdated medical certificates will not be accepted.
If a student is unable to submit Special Consideration by the deadline, they (or their representative) must contact La Trobe Melbourne by phone or email.
Please refer to policies on our website:

Academic Misconduct Plagiarism and collusion are academic offences.  They are forms of cheating and severe penalties are associated with them.  If a student is caught plagiarising they may be failed in that piece of assessment.
Plagiarism occurs when a student passes off as their own another student’s work, or copies without acknowledgment of its authorship, the work of any other person.
Collusion occurs when a student obtains the agreement of another person for a fraudulent purpose with the intent of obtaining an advantage in submitting an assignment or other work.
Whenever you refer to another person’s research or ideas (whether directly quoting or by paraphrasing them) you MUST acknowledge the source.  Also, copying paragraphs from web pages and presenting them as your own work is plagiarism.  If you download and copy paragraphs from a web page, you must identify the source.
La Trobe Melbourne will provide plagiarism detection software to assist both staff and students with the identification of instances where work intended for submission or actually submitted is inappropriately copied from another source either in whole or in part.
Refer to La Trobe University’s website for information on plagiarism and acknowledging source material:
Examination Misconduct
This may take various forms, for example:
  • Bringing into an examination forbidden material (notes) or gaining access to such material during an examination (e.g. by communication via mobile phone with another person, planting material in a toilet, speaking or using hand gestures to communicate with others, etc).
  • Copying from an adjacent student in a formal examination.
  • Gaining knowledge of or revealing content of an examination in a circumstance in which a student has taken the examination earlier or later than the scheduled time.
Any form of misconduct in an exam will be treated as a serious offence and students will face severe penalties. Where the intent of the student is to cheat they will receive zero marks for their exam.
Should an examination invigilator suspect a student of engaging in examination misconduct, they shall normally allow the student to complete the examination. They will complete an incident report, attach any relevant evidence, and submit it to the Academic Director within 72 hours of the date of the exam. The Academic Director will notify the student of the alleged misconduct in writing via email and give the student an opportunity to submit their case. The student shall then be notified of the outcome in writing via email. Please note, some exams are open book.  If you see somebody using notes, this is not an invitation for you to also take out notes.  If an exam is an open book exam, it will be clearly stated on the front page.
Assignment Submission Assignments must be submitted by the due date.  Students must complete the Assignment Cover Sheet available from the portal and attach it to their assignment. 
Check with your teacher for submission guidelines.  Assignments may be asked to be submitted via the portal or handed to your teacher in class.  Assignments are not accepted at reception.
Students must keep a copy of each assignment submitted and must be able to produce the copy in the unlikely event that the original assignment is misplaced.  Students must maintain backup copies of all their assignment work.  Electronic loss of data is possible, but is not a satisfactory excuse for an extension of a submission date.
Late Submission
Extension for medical reasons: 
If your work is late for medical reasons, you will need a medical certificate to cover you from the time the assignment was due until the time it is submitted. The medical certificate must accompany an application for special consideration. 
An extension of assignment submission for circumstances in the time leading up to the due date must be applied for in writing to your teacher at least 48 hours prior to the due date.
Penalties for late submission:
Assignments received late and without prior approval will be penalised.  A penalty of 5% of the available marks will be deducted every working day the assignment is late.  Assignments received after five working days, and without an approved extension, will receive 0%
Class Attendance Attendance is an important element of a student’s success in their studies and it is strongly recommended that attendance is maintained in all classes.  All work covered in class is examinable.  Poor attendance can lead to failure to progress academically.  Failing to progress may result in exclusion from study, and for international students, this may lead to cancellation of a student visa.
Attendance will be recorded in all sessions and Foundation Studies students need to be aware that if they fail to meet satisfactory attendance requirements, as set out by DIAC, they may be breaching their visa requirements.
For any given trimester, the expected attendance requirement is that all domestic and international students attend a minimum of 80 per cent of classes over the 12 week period. 
Students are expected to attend the full duration of each class.  However, students will be marked as present for a late arrival within the first hour of each scheduled class.  Thereafter, students will be marked as absent.
