About the courseEconomics is the study of resource allocation and examines how the economy operates to provide us with the things we want. In a world of scarce resources, choices have to be made and economics studies how those choices are made. Economics is very important and yet in public affairs economic decisions are sometimes made without an understanding of basic economic principles. The student who is interested in looking at the long term effects of economic policy on the community and is interested in combining this with some solid analytical and empirical tools, will find the study of economics exciting and intellectually stimulating as well as useful for a rewarding career. Economics is a social science dedicated to the study of decision-making under scarcity, and the factors that influence wealth. Economics involves financial topics and broader historical, sociological and cultural topics ranging from the individual (microeconomics) to governments, industries and central banking (macroeconomics). This extensive and multidisciplinary study of the economy is what sets it apart from other seemingly similar topics such as Business or Finance.
