About Economics

Economics Helps You Learn Why

If you thought economics was all about money, think again. It’s really about all the resources nations employ to create goods and services, jobs and prosperity. Some of those resources can be financial, but they can also be found in the skills of workers and how they apply them, as well as the physical assets of property, raw materials, equipment and technology. Economics is what we do with all those assets that determine the quality of life we enjoy. 

An economics’ degree at Butler covers both macroeconomic and microeconomic perspectives. At the macroeconomic level, you learn about public policies and regulations, as well as private sector business models and market dynamics that influence the national economy. Courses in microeconomics give you the practical knowledge you need as a consumer, worker and entrepreneur to participate more effectively in the economy. You learn to analyze market trends, economic structures and the impact of individual or government decision making strategies.
