What is Economics?


Economics is the social science which involves the study of economic activities conducted by economic entities in an economy and between economies. It also involves the explanation on monetized activities by human beings and how they will conduct these activities to maximize their gains based the interest of an individual, firm, society and the country.

The focus of the study of Economics is to explain how the various economic entities will attempt to maximise their gain or welfare with the limited resources they have in the economic activities conducted by them.

Why Study Economics?


The study of Economics is significant for the development of human civilization as it deals with the problem of scarcity where scarce resources can be better utilized to resolve the economic reality of unlimited wants.

The study of Economics will help the economic entities make better decision-making in the way that they utilize resources to maximize the welfare they will gain from their economic activities in a process, known as resource allocation.

At the individual level, it will help to explain how individuals gain the maximum level of satisfaction from their consumption activities and how they buy based on the factors that will affect their consumption behaviours.

For the society, it will help to show how the society allocates the limited resources to maximize the interests of the society as a whole through the concept of cost and benefit analysis.
