Eurozone in charts

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Another great set of interactive graphs here. This set allows you to compare all EU countries deficits, GDP, debt and unemployment. Not only is this great for starting up some discussion but also could be used for some delicious data questions.

Best and worst case scenarios for the EU

Here is a great interactive graphic from the BBC to show the best and worst case scenarios for the EU. A good resource to be using at the end of term!

Great graphic - European debt

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

It can be quite hard for students to understand the European debt crisis. This interactive graphic from the Telegraph is great for showing students.

Great short video on Eurozone interest rates and much more

Thursday, April 07, 2011

I have just seen this on the news at 10. It is a fantastic video looking at the change in interest rates in the Eurozone.
It is packed full with some great figures, really useful for the OCR GCSE Economics Global Economy paper and also for those study OCR A Level Economics and doing the pre-released case study.

Economic growth in the Eurozone - activity

Monday, December 13, 2010

The BBC have a great short clip on economic growth in the eurozone. This would make a great lesson looking at the Eurozone, the countries in it and finding data on their main macroeconomic indicators.

Great video - Why bail out Ireland

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

The BBC have produced a great short video which will help answer the question why should the UK bail out Ireland.

The World on Wednesday - Greece

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

This BBC video is a greater starter. Greece face a massive budget deficit and are now looking to the EU for help with how they deal with it. One of the major issues is that Greece’s problems could spill over and have damaging consequences to other EU countries.

The Mamma Mia effect

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

Our summer holidays are probably starting to feel like a distant memory now. Many Brits opted to stay in the UK this year due to the recession. This has affected many holiday destinations abroad, such as Greece.

25 per cent unemployment in the Canary Islands

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Spain is an interesting economy for GCSE students to look at. In Spain tourism accounts for 10% of gross national product and one in eight jobs. Construction is also a very important industry. And both sectors are now struggling with the pain of recession.

Many hotels have temporarily closed even during the summer season and the bars, restaurants, hire cars and airports are being affected by the downturn in demand. Economists have a term for this - a negative multiplier effect.

This BBC news video looks at the Canary Islands where one person in four is unemployed (an unemployment rate of 25% is nearly four times the jobless rate we have here in the UK).
