Overall aims and purpose

Nid casgliad o ffeithiau i’w hysgrifennu a’u cofio yw economeg. Ffordd o feddwl am y byd yw economeg – ac mae’r byd yn newid drwy’r amser. Mae economegwyr wedi datblygu set o gysyniadau ac egwyddorion syml, ond y gellir eu cymhwyso’n eang, yn amrywio o benderfyniadau y mae unigolion yn eu gwneud bob dydd i benderfyniadau a wneir gan gwmnïau a llywodraethau mewn marchnadoedd cymhleth. Nod y cwrs hwn yw helpu myfyrwyr i ddysgu a deall y cysyniadau a’r egwyddorion hyn a’u cymhwyso at amrywiaeth o sefyllfaoedd economaidd.

Subject specific skills

  • Framing. Through the study of economics, a student should learn how to decide what should be taken as given or fixed for the purposes of setting up and solving a problem, i.e. what the important 'parameters' are in constraining the solution to the problem. Learning to think about how and why these parameters might change encourages a student to place the economic problem in its broader social and political context. This 'framing' skill is important in determining the decision-maker's ability to implement the solutions to problems.
