The branch of social science
deals with the production and distribution and consumption of goods and
services and their management. The
Economy can not grow
. The economy can only become more effective and
more efficient and
more fair. To grow is to slowly die. That is why
education needs to improve. The only thing that should be growing is human
intelligence. There's no other way.

is a sub-field of economics that is concerned
with environmental issues. Quoting from the National Bureau of Economic
Research Environmental Economics program: Environmental Economics
Undertakes theoretical or empirical studies of the economic effects of
national or local environmental policies around the world. Particular
issues include the costs and benefits of alternative environmental
policies to deal with air pollution, water quality, toxic substances,

from environmental economics, which is the mainstream economic analysis of

Natural Resource Economics
deals with the supply, demand, and
allocation of the Earth's natural
. One main
objective of natural resource economics is to better understand the role
of natural resources in the economy in order to develop more sustainable
methods of managing those resources to ensure their availability to future
generations. Resource economists study interactions between economic and
natural systems, with the goal of developing a
and efficient economy.
Natural Capital Accounting
is the process of
the total stocks
and flows of natural resources and services in a given ecosystem or
region. Accounting for such goods may occur in physical or monetary terms.
This process can subsequently inform government, corporate and consumer
decision making as each relates to the use or consumption of natural
resources and land, and sustainable
is the sum of all the energy required to produce any
, considered as
if that energy was incorporated or 'embodied' in the product itself. The
concept can be useful in determining the effectiveness of energy-producing
or energy-saving devices, or the "real" replacement cost of a building,
and, because energy-inputs usually entail greenhouse gas emissions, in
deciding whether a product contributes to or mitigates global warming. One
fundamental purpose for measuring this quantity is to compare the amount
of energy produced or saved by the product in question to the amount of
energy consumed in producing it.

is a type of accounting that attempts to factor
environmental costs into the financial results of operations. It has been
argued that gross domestic product ignores the environment and therefore
policymakers need a revised model that incorporates green accounting. The
major purpose of green accounting is to help businesses understand and
manage the potential quid pro quo
between traditional economics goals and environmental goals. It also
increases the important information available for analyzing policy issues,
especially when those vital pieces of information are often overlooked.
Green accounting is said to only ensure weak

is an economic system where decisions regarding investment, production,

prices of goods and services. Price Gouging
is a branch of economics that studies the
behavior of individuals and firms in making decisions regarding the
allocation of limited resources.
is a branch of economics dealing with the performance, structure,
behavior, and decision-making of an economy as a whole rather than
individual markets. This includes national, regional, and global
economies. Along with microeconomics, macroeconomics is one of the two
most general fields in economics.
is an economic activity where an
immaterial exchange of value occurs. When a service such as labor is
performed the buyer does not take exclusive ownership of that which is
purchased, unless agreed upon by buyer and seller. The benefits of such a
service, if priced, are held to be self-evident in the buyer's willingness
to pay for it. Public services are those, that society (nation state,
fiscal union, regional) as a whole pays for, through taxes and other
argues economic growth can be most
effectively created by investing in capital and by lowering barriers on
the production of goods and services. According to supply-side economics,
consumers will then benefit from a greater supply of goods and services at
lower prices; furthermore, the investment and expansion of businesses will
increase the demand for employees and therefore create jobs. Typical
policy recommendations of supply-side economists are lower marginal tax
rates and less government regulation.
characterize economic policies as favoring the

is a set of solutions to economics focusing on
the determination of goods, outputs, and income distributions in markets
through supply and demand. This determination is often mediated through a
hypothesized maximization of utility by income-constrained individuals and
by firms facing production costs and employing available
information and factors of production, in accordance with rational choice

attempts to explain the behavior of supply, demand,

seeking to prove that the interaction of demand and supply will result in

individuals including individual knowledge, time, expectation, and other
subjective factors, cause all economic phenomena. Austrians seek to
understand the economy by examining the social ramifications of individual
choice, an approach called methodological individualism. It differs from
other schools of economic thought, which have focused on aggregate
variables, equilibrium analysis, and societal groups rather than
sustained increase in the general price level of goods and services in an
economy over a period of time.

An indirect tax (such as sales tax, per unit tax, value
added tax (VAT), or goods and services tax (GST)) is a tax collected by an
intermediary (such as a retail store) from the person who bears the
ultimate economic burden of the tax (such as the consumer). The
intermediary later files a tax return and forwards the tax proceeds to
government with the return.

Family and Consumer Science
is the study of government policy through
the lens of economic efficiency and equity. At its most basic level,
public economics provides a framework for thinking about whether or not
the government should participate in economics markets and to what extent
its role should be. In order to do so, microeconomic theory is utilized to
assess whether the private market is likely to provide efficient outcomes
in the absence of governmental interference.

alternative sets of legal-institutional-constitutional rules that

This extends beyond the definition of "the economic analysis of

economic and political agents within those rules, a subject of orthodox

Gross Domestic Product
is a monetary measure of the market value of all final goods and services
produced in a period (quarterly or yearly). Nominal GDP estimates are
commonly used to determine the economic performance of a whole country or
region, and to make international comparisons. Nominal GDP per capita does
not, however, reflect differences in the cost of living and the inflation
rates of the countries; therefore using a basis of GDP at purchasing power
parity (PPP) is arguably more useful when comparing differences in living
standards between nations.
is an economic concept used to measure total
economic activity in the production of new goods and services in an
accounting period. It is a much broader measure of the economy than gross
domestic product (GDP), which is limited mainly to final output (finished
goods and services). In 2016, the Bureau of Economic Analysis estimated
gross output in the United States to be $32.4 trillion, compared to $18.7
trillion for GDP.
are statistical models used in econometrics. An
econometric model specifies the statistical relationship that is believed
to hold between the various economic quantities pertaining to a particular
economic phenomenon under study. An econometric model can be derived from
a deterministic economic model by allowing for uncertainty, or from an
economic model which itself is stochastic. However, it is also possible to
use econometric models that are not tied to any specific economic theory.

have is increasing the
