Choosing Economics

In a dynamic world it is essential to understand how the economy works. Economics is a social science that seeks to understand human activity as producers and consumers of goods and services. Economics deals with the economy’s limited resources (land, labour, capital and entrepreneurship) and how they are used in the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. It focuses on how producers, workers and traders use these resources efficiently.
