What is Economics all about?

In layman terms, Economics is the study of the ways in which resources are utilized in industries, businesses and people.

Many topics revolve around Economics; macroeconomic policy, production, efficiency, market failure, opportunity cost, resource allocation etc.

Economics gives you a wide lens on how to view society as a whole...

...and what drives every minuscule action that will affect every part of it, and how we can help benefit the world by changing the way we live.

Schools of Thought: Mainstream vs Heterodox

These are commonly-asked questions by many students contemplating whether or not to study Economics. To start with, one should understand Economic theories and its application to the modern world.

There are 2 broad categories of thinking: Mainstream Economics and Heterodox Economics.

[Mainstream economics] a name coined to describe an orthodox or neoclassical school of economic thought, whose concepts are central to economic theories currently being taught in many universities around the world.

Popularly-known, mainstream economics states that markets are moved by an “invisible hand” and follow rational choice theory where all actors are rational and maximize their own utility. The origins of mainstream economics began in the mind of Adam Smith.

A major criticism is they do not take the irrational nature of markets and individuals into consideration, thus there is an emergence of alternative fields of study, which is discussed in the next category of thinking.

[Heterodox economics] a new economic thought that falls outside of mainstream economics, which is critical of the role of the government and the rationality of actors.

One example in this field of thinking is behavioral economics which take into account factors that affect an actor’s decision is not quantifiable and markets is not always efficient, e.g global financial crisis.

Another example of heterodox economics is environmental economics - a field that studies policy decisions for promoting sustainable businesses and reducing pollution.

Learning the 2 different schools of thought...

...would give students a worldly view on how Economics impact the decision-making process of government institutions on how policies are formulated, to how a man in the street decides on where to spend his next dollar.
