What is economics?

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. 

Need an appointment?

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.

For writing help, you can contact the Writing Center. For statistics tutoring, you can contact the Department of Mathematics

Remember, any of the Reference staff at our library can assist you with the basics of research help, but if you need assistance with economics specifically, please feel free to let me know!
