Economics and Finance

Volume Editors


Economics, as a field of study, is diverse in the topics it encompasses and the methods or techniques it uses. It explores decisions and choices under constraints of individuals, groups, firms, governments, or societies. The discipline examines the allocation and distribution of resources as well as their creation and exchange, whether at a given time or across it. The issues studied cover a broad range, for example, from health and education to crime and punishment, from revenues and expenditures of governments and companies to how individuals respond to incentives, and the conditions of cooperation, coordination, or conflict. Economics is theoretical and empirical, whether statistical, experimental, or historical. Economics examines and explains trends and patterns of individual and aggregate human behavior and their implications.
