The study of economics is the study of the world around us. It is the study of how individuals, groups, and nation-states allocate scarce resources. Economics incorporates multiple disciplines such as political science, business, finance, sociology, and the humanities. Students who study economics have a richer appreciation for what motivates individuals and businesses and can understand how to optimize decision-making for the betterment of all.
