Economics is a social science that studies production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. Economics explores how individuals, businesses, governments and other organizations make choices under conditions of scarcity. Macroeconomics is concerned with the overall national economy analyzing the decisions made by countries and governments. Microeconomics is focused on decisions made by individuals, groups and companies.     


Economists engage in a number of activities including research, analysis, advising, and teaching. Some work for local, state and federal government entities, such as the Federal Reserve, analyzing and forecasting market conditions and trends. Other are employed by large businesses and organization where they utilize analytics and mathematical models to inform operations. Many economists work for colleges and universities teaching students important macro and micro concepts as well as international and comparative economics.
