Economics is a social science that seeks to understand human behavior by analyzing how changes in incentives affect the choices individuals and groups of individuals make. The basic challenge of economic decision making involves satisfying unlimited human wants with limited resources. Studying economics also provides an excellent foundation for graduate studies in law, public policy, international studies, or business.
