Economics and Finance
At its core, economics is about how people make choices, and the impact of those choices. So even if you don't think of yourself as an economist, reading about economics can be fascinating. You are, after all, an economic actor, making economic decisions every day. Building a sound decision-making framework, and understanding the processes and structures in which you're making those decisions, will benefit you, your family, and your community.
Finance is that aspect of economics that studies how money is managed and invested by people, firms, and governments: personal finance, corporate finance, and public finance. As with economics in general, you might not think of yourself as a specialist, but as a person making decisions about your own money (and living in a world where corporate and government decisions will affect how much money you have), finance is relevant to you.
