Discipline summary

Economics is the study of the production, distribution and consumption of limited resources. Economists study the interplay between labor, land, currency, income, taxes and government spending to understand the prosperity and welfare of societies, with an eye towards manipulating these factors for the betterment of society over time. Economics is often categorized under two distinctive areas: macroeconomics and microeconomics. Macroeconomics takes a holistic approach to the study of economics and aims to understand the workings of a nation/region by examining the effects and relationships of such factors as inflation, monetary policy, and unemployment. Microeconomics aims to study the decision making of individuals and how their respective behaviors affect the supply and demand of goods.
