The study of economics looks at a range of vital current problems in the fluctuating economic environment, such as firm and consumer behaviour, labour markets, government tax and expenditure policy and managing the aggregate economy. This in turn helps experts understand and prevent these problems through key analytical tools such as microeconomic and macroeconomic instruments and empirical analysis using econometric modelling.
