Economics is a social science that deals with the allocation of resources within and across firms, households, and other decision-making units. It also deals with the functional and personal distribution of income. As such, it covers the operation and organization of firms and industries, the determination of prices for factors and products, as well as the determinants of economic growth and development. It analyzes production, consumption, investment, employment, trade, and government interventions including fiscal, monetary, and regulatory policies. Thus, both micro- and macro-economic analyses are essential in the decision making of households and governments.
