Business Economics Professional

Description

What is economics about? Economics is the problem of using the available resources as efficiently as possible so as to achieve the maximum fulfillment of society's unlimited demand for goods and services. The ultimate purpose of economic endeavor is to satisfy human wants for goods and services.

The problem is that whereas wants are virtually without limit, the resources - natural resources, labor and capital (machinery) - available at any one time to produce goods and services are limited in supply. Resources are scarce. This fact of scarcity means that we must always be making choices about what to produce, how to produce it and for whom.

Decisions must be made so that these scarce resources are allocated optimally or efficiently to their end use. This implies they could not be used more beneficially elsewhere. This is the criterion economists use to judge many economic phenomenon and is the focus of our study of the economic approaches to organizations.

  • Perspectives on the Economic Approaches to Organization
  • Co-ordination through the Market Mechanism
  • Organizational Co-ordination
  • Information and Co-ordination Mechanisms
