Economics (経済学) Vol.1 Definition

今日は、経済学について思い出してみます。
と言うのも、先セメスターでMacroeconomicsを履修したので
折角だし少し思い出してみようと思いました。

Study of the economy. Classic economics concentrates on how the forces of supply and demand allocate scarce (十分でない、乏しい) product and service resources. Macroeconomics studies a nation or the world's economy as a whole, using data about inflation, unemployment and industrial production (工業生産) to understand the past and predict the future. Microeconomics studies the behavior of specific sectors (部門) of the economy, such as companies, industries, or households. Over the years, various schools of economic thought have gained prominence (名をあげる、有名になる), including Keynesian Economics, Monetarism and Supply-Side Economics.

マクロ経済学とミクロ経済学の大まかな内容でした。

Economics is often described as a body of knowledge or study that discusses how a society tries to solve the human problems of unlimited wants (無限の要求) and scarce resources (不十分な供給源). Because economics is associated with human behavior, the study of economics is classified as a social science (社会科学). Because economics deals with human problems, it cannot be an exact science and one can easily find differing views (異なる視点) and descriptions of economics. In this discussion, the focus is an overview of the elements that constitute the study of economics, that is, wants, needs, scarcity, resources, goods and services, economic choice, and the laws of supply and demand.

Every person is involved with making economic decisions every day of his or her life. This occurs when one decides whether to cook a meal at home or go to a restaurant to eat, or when one decides between purchasing a new luxury car or a low-priced pickup truck. People make economic decisions when they decide whether to rent or purchase housing or where they should attend college.
