If you are looking for an intellectually stimulating and financially rewarding career, you should consider economics. Economics can help us understand some of the following questions:
● Why do women earn less than men?
● Why is water (which is essential for life) cheaper than diamonds?
● Why are some countries rich while other countries are poor?
● Why do voters elect politicians who choose bad policies?
● Why is health care so expensive?
Economics is a study of human behavior. It helps us understand the forces which drive the interactions between individuals, firms, politicians and countries. It not only helps to evaluate the real impact of public policies, but also make better decisions in our professional and personal life.
