I got into economics because I wanted to make things better for the average person.”

Ben Bernanke 

  Economics is often called the study of how to resolve scarcity so as to best satisfy our wants and needs — how to allocate scarce resources, such as money, natural resources, our time, or our energy, among their many competing uses. That's the subject of economics.

Perhaps more important, though, is that economics is a way of thinking. The most important thing you'll get from studying economics is that you'll learn to "think like an economist" — developing skill at identifying the essential elements of a problem, and developing the analytical skills for finding solutions.

This economic way of thinking and analyzing can be applied to a remarkable range of problems, in many different fields: how to make good individual decisions and good business decisions; how to take account of strategic considerations; how to explain human behaviour (and even animal behaviour!); how to address public policy issues such as unemployment, inflation, pollution, and international trade and politics.

Over the years Economics as a subject has evolved a lot. The thrust area has shifted to analytical economics from the theoretical economics. “Data is the new oil”-Economics may be the key to extract the oil. New ways are always being discovered to apply the economic way of thinking: to marriage, divorce, and fertility; to intellectual property and the Internet; to the ecological balance of nature; to just about anything people, animals, firms, and governments do.

Consequently, studying economics will give superb preparation for many careers in business, law, government, education, and consulting. Masters in economics are sought by financial institutions, by consulting firms, by government agencies, by law schools and business schools, and by business firms of all kinds and all sizes.
