It will also give you more confidence in your personal finances because you’ll be more aware of the changing economic situation and how this affects your pocket.
Economics teaches students to think logically and to use theories to understand how economies operate. At the centre of the subject is the question of how we divide up our scarce resources, and how decisions resulting from this affect us all, in other words who gets what, and why?
