|Field of Study:||Economics, General
|Description:||Economics is the social science that studies how individuals, firms, and governments make choices on allocating scarce resources to satisfy unlimited wants. Economics is everywhere: from students choosing how much time to allocate to studying versus going to the gym or going out, to governments choosing how to allocate resources to education, health care, or security, all these decisions involve a choice of one or more alternatives given limited resources, such as time and/or money.
There are two main branches of economics — microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics studies the behaviour of individual decision makers such as firms and households. It deals with determination of prices and quantities in individual markets and with the relationship among markets. In contrast, macroeconomics is concerned with the behaviour of the economy as a whole, in particular, with factors such as unemployment, national income, economic growth, inflation and price levels.
