Economics is the social science that studies the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. It explores how individuals, businesses, governments, and nations make choices on allocating resources to satisfy their needs and wants, and how these choices interact to influence the economy. The discipline is typically divided into microeconomics, which focuses on the behavior of individual agents and markets, and macroeconomics, which deals with the performance, structure, and behavior of an economy as a whole. Key concepts include supply and demand, inflation, unemployment, and economic growth. Economics not only helps in understanding complex market dynamics and policy decisions but also in addressing issues such as poverty, inequality, and development. It integrates insights from various other fields, including politics, sociology, and history, to provide a comprehensive understanding of economic phenomena.
