Summary:
The study of economics begins with the idea that people cannot have everything they need and want. To look at the world economically, we can focus on the decisions that people make. At its core, economics is the study of how people choose to use their limited resources. Because people act individually, in groups (such as businesses), and through governments, economists study each of these groups. - Publisher.
