Economics is concerned with how people make choices in conditions of resource scarcity and the results of these choices for society. Many of the world's most pressing issues such as global warming/climate change, underdevelopment, rising inequality, inflation and financial instability are economic in nature. In understanding these problems, economists make use of a wide variety of analytical techniques borrowed from numerous other fields including history, philosophy, mathematics and statistics.
