Details About Blantyre International University BIU

 Economics is the study of individuals and social activities related to the choice, production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. In relation to these decisions, economics is concerned with the behaviour and interaction of individuals, private firms, and other institutions and government agencies.

Economics contributes to the understanding of many important social problems: changes in efficiency and productivity, fluctuations in the overall levels of economic activity and employment, inflation, the effects of government deficits, the growth and decline of industries, changes in foreign exchange rates, increases in international indebtedness, and the behaviour of the developed and less developed countries.

Economics makes an excellent complement to business disciplines. Most business disciplines look at business from the inside. Economics looks at business in the context of its relation to other businesses, to the government, to consumers, to employment and to the evolution of society as a whole.
