Economics is a social science concerned with how people make choices and allocate resources. Economists learn clear thinking and effective decision making, so they can analyze problems from different angles. For instance, a multinational corporation may use someone with economics training to forecast foreign demand for their products and determine how to sell more overseas. Or an economist could help government officials decide the best way to use a community’s financial and physical resources.
