Abstract

Knowledge of economic issues and relationships is of great importance not only for many everyday situations, but also for the independent formation of judgments by mature citizens. Standardized testing of economic knowledge (cf. e.g. Walstad et al. 2013; Rumpold 2018) has repeatedly shown strong heterogeneity regarding the understanding of economic matters within the population. Birke and Seeber (2011) mention one considerable disadvantage of such tests: this kind of research permits only limited conclusions on differences in economic thinking or different conceptions. However, exactly these insights may be needed for the improvements of economic education. In order to contribute to closing the research gap, a qualitative study on students’ underlying conceptions of economics and the economy was conducted. The goal was to explore which conceptions students have about economics and which didactic measures can be derived from those conceptions.
