Economics

The most basic and enduring strength of economics is that it provides a logical and orderly way of analyzing contemporary economic issues.

It draws upon geography, history, philosophy, and mathematics to address topics ranging from how an individual, household or firm, can make rational decisions regarding spending, saving, investment and profits to how a society can make optimal decisions regarding economic growth, inflation, unemployment, trade, and environment.

As a result, economics is widely recognized as a solid background for many jobs and professions in the private and public sectors.
