Economics is the study of how people behave and how societies allocate scarce resources among competing uses. Every day, people and society are confronted by choices. Should you go to university or start a career? What should you do with your next dollar? Should the government raise the minimum wage, or not? How do we address the big issues in the world such as poverty and climate change?

Economics is the study of how people and societies make such decisions in the production, exchange, distribution and consumption of goods and services. Central to economic analysis is the study of how people respond to incentives in a market economy, how these incentives may be modified by government intervention, and whether and how government intervention is warranted. At Canterbury, emphasis is placed on the three core areas of study. These are: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics.
