Economics is the study of the allocation of scarce resources in society and the problems involving the use and distribution of those resources. Thus, broadly defined, economics is concerned with: the ways in which prices, wages and profits are determined; theways in which production and distribution change over time; and the ways in which government affects the economy by monetary, fiscal and other policies.
