|Description:||The study of Economics is intended to provide students with general economic awareness and insight, thus making them more informed about the world in which they live. The discipline of Economics in general can be said to arise out of the problem of scarcity. We all want more and better for ourselves, but – in a world of scarce resources – there are not enough good things to satisfy our wants. Economics is the science of how we allocate scarce resources, especially through markets. Micro-Economics studies the operation of individual markets. It addresses such issues as: supply and demand, production decisions, consumer utility and preferences, shortages and surpluses, efficiency, governments in the markets, externalities, and public goods. Macro-economics is the study of markets taken together in a national economy. It addresses issues such as productive growth, unemployment, inflation, aggregate supply, aggregate demand, interest and exchange rates, monetary and fiscal policy, and international trade. The focus is on the Canadian economy.
