Economics is a division of the social sciences that deals with studying and understanding the processes that govern the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services in an exchange economy.
Two broad areas of economics are macroeconomics and microeconomics. The former of these concentrates on large-scale analyses of financial groups, business, countries, the world, etc. The latter of these focuses on small-scale analyses of individual behaviors and interactions.
To get a broad sense of what economists do, here's the entry for Economists in the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook Handbook.
If you'd like to set up an appointment with me to talk about your assignments, send me an e-mail. Let me know what the assignment is about, what research you've done thus far, and any other related information.
I will be glad to help you with using the databases, looking for books, brainstorming ideas, citing sources, and related tasks. However, I can't help you write your paper, do your statistics, or complete any of your homework assignments.
Remember, any of the Reference staff at our library can assist you with the basics of research help, but if you need assistance with psychology specifically, please feel free to let me know!
