Economy is the basis of our live, we are rich, or poor, or somewhere in the mid of it and the Economy is one of the most important tools by which our economic situation goes on.
Found Biz/ed, an online help for students, and for all of us wanting understand a bit better some economic basis concepts. Biz/ed updated is their actual new formula. They write:
Biz/ed is evolving: For the last ten years, Biz/ed has provided a range of comprehensive and authoritative teaching and learning resources to support Business, Economics, Accounting and Leisure & Tourism qualifications. Now Biz/ed is starting to evolve, and there are going to be a few changes that we would like to keep you informed about.
Biz/ed is now under new ownership: Thomson Learning is a leading business studies educational publisher and our partnership with them provides exciting opportunities for the future. The existing Biz/ed team will, of course, still be behind the site, producing and managing content but with beefed-up resources we will be improving the site’s design, moving to new servers and introducing new features.
Biz/ed has been funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee JISC for the last four years: The JISC receives its funds from HEFCE and the LSC. As such, Biz/ed was obliged to focus on the HE/FE market (Eduserv Chest Datasets Agreements for FE: Homepage, and Overview). The partnership with Thomson provides Biz/ed with much greater freedom to develop resources to cater for all sections of the education community. Regular features will continue to be available free of charge. Subtle advertising and limited subscription will provide Biz/ed with the income to be able to maintain the stream of free content whilst developing high quality cost-effective teaching and learning materials for teachers, lecturers and students. This will provide more choice and flexibility in the way you are able to use Biz/ed.
