Economics is the study of how individuals and societies organize the production and distribution of goods and services. This involves an historical understanding of how economics develop and how people in various groups (according to gender, race, class) interact with it.
One of the tools economics provides is the ability to analyze the possible costs and benefits of competing alternatives. It provides a framework through which difficult choices can be analyzed—whether an individual should go to college now or later, or whether a firm should invest its money in more machines or offer a bonus to its labor force, or whether a government should spend money on schools or military hardware.
Training in economics provides excellent preparation for careers in industry, government and many professions including law, education, public administration and management.
