Economics is the study of the choices people have to make because wants are unlimited but the resources available to satisfy those wants are scarce. It analyzes and evaluates the functioning and outcomes of markets at both a micro (individuals and firms) and macro (aggregate) level, and offers insights into profits, growth, welfare, efficiency, and the distribution of wealth and income. Economics is an essential aspect of daily life, and many fields, including business and financial management, accounting, securities and stock investing, and insurance sales, apply economic principles.
