Administered by the College of Business and Engineering, the Economics program at University of Texas Permian Basin is designed to afford students the opportunity to prepare as economists or to serve other disciplines such as accounting, finance, management, marketing, government, education, sociology or history. Economics includes two broad areas: microeconomics and macroeconomics.
A basic understanding of economics is essential for a well-informed citizenry since most of today’s problems have important economic aspects. It is also a vital discipline for, and is of practical value in, business decision-making. An understanding of the overall operation of the economic system puts businesses in a better position to formulate policies.
Microeconomics is an area applicable to any study of human endeavor where scarce resources must be allocated among competing uses. It is the study of humankind’s behavior in producing, exchanging and consuming material goods and services. Macroeconomics includes the study of the performance of the economy as a whole and includes such problems as inflation, unemployment and the rate of economic growth. Both areas include forecasting, a skill enabling individuals, firms and governmental bodies to adjust to anticipated economic conditions. In spite of its practical benefits, economics is primarily an academic, not a vocational subject. In economics, problems are examined from a social, rather than an individual, point of view.
