Who is the resource aimed at?
Students who want some answers to questions such as "why are all my clothes made in Asia?" and "how do I get a pay rise?" - this is for you.
How can the resource be used?
Listen at your leisure on the bus, while you tidy your room or while you work. Teachers - you might even want to play this to students a bit at a time, before gently (read: enthusiastically) encouraging your students to have a read.
How does the resource link to the curriculum?
Lizzy Burden's work as an economics reporter at Bloomberg is relevant to the A-level curriculum in several ways.
