Economics is an important framework for analyzing decision-making behavior – on both the individual level (micro) and the societal level (macro). It describes the principles underlying individual transactions and the broader markets they fuel. A solid understanding of economics is valuable not just as a foundation for your career, but in your day-to-day life as an engaged voter and an informed consumer..
