What is economics? Economics is more than just being about money. It is the study of how individuals, businesses and entire nations make choices about allocating limited resources to meet unlimited needs and wants. Because of this, economics is relevant to everyone and is often talked about on a daily basis in the media. It covers a range of different disciplines, including maths, business, psychology, history and politics.
