Economics is the study of how individuals and organizations make choices and how those choices determine the way resources are used. Choices matter because society’s resources, whether capital, natural resources or people’s time, are scarce. Economists study the problem of choice using a scientific approach; they systematically explore economic problems both by developing theories and examining data.
