Economics is a social science. It is "social" because it deals with norms and incentives that define the economic behavior of individuals and groups. It is a "science" because it uses models to study choices in the production and distribution of wealth. Economists try to understand how existing resources are allocated and how new resources are created. Our research focuses on such factors as productivity, markets, employment, income distribution, and growth.
