Ms. Suchitra Surve in this episode speaks about the field Economics. Economics is looked at as a theoretical subject, but its application is in daily life. Be it a small business owner or a service-oriented person or a homemaker one cannot do away, without connecting with Economics.
Economics in simple terms means a part of Social Sciences. Economics means studying, about Production, Distribution, and Consumptions. It may be of goods and services along with management. It also deals with land labor, investments, money cost, expenditures and so on. All of this to ensure the production and consumption of goods and services reach the right people from the right people. In economics, we see the application of mathematics and statistics.
