Welcome to the Listening Practice Pack – SAMPLE. This section, called Economics, focuses on aspects regarding the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. When most think of economics, they think of money, and there will be passages on the history of money, how it has evolved and why we use it in the manner we do today. Trade, capital, commerce, and the workplace are all aspects of economics and will be delved into on a much deeper level in this section. Of course, as with all other subjects in these TOEFL passages, studying economics in this manner will help you develop your TOEFL® Listening skills.
