The motivation for learning a subject like economics can be diverse. First of all, simple curiosity, the desire to understand the world in which we live, and pleasure are all commendable and sufficient motivations for learning economics.
Furthermore, it is also particularly important to learn economics for practical reasons at the professional level. Every manager, executive and anyone who wants to develop professionally in positions of responsibility should take a course in economics in order to understand its basics.
Understanding economics makes it possible to be a good manager. Indeed, in the context of economic policy, this manifests itself through the optimal management of scarce resources. It is important to stress that the resources available on the planet are very limited and good economics help in dealing with these problems.
However, humans have always been able to develop the know-how to find solutions to overcome this scarcity, particularly through technical progress. As economics is a human science, it looks at the incentives and actions generated through statistical analysis.
The latter ensures the processing of information to come out with decisions and recommendations in an environment characterised by a great abundance of accumulated data.
