Home educators have some great choices when it comes to economics. While textbook-based courses from publishers such as A Beka, School of Tomorrow, and BJU Press are good, you might find it much more interesting to create your own course. One option might be to begin with Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? Next, read Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson. Use Money Matters for Teens for "personal economics." Use The Myth of the Robber Barons to make interesting connections between economics, history, and government.
Ray Notgrass's Exploring Economics course combines many of these elements from my "do-it-yourself" course (and works well for independent study) and Basic Economics Fourth Edition also combines some of these elements and online resources with their outstanding textbook for another great option.
