Economic studies analyze how people and societies produce various commodities and distribute them for consumption, now or in the future. CRC's economics offerings include the study of the American economic system, using techniques for the analysis of contemporary economic problems. There is an emphasis on developing the ability to exercise sound judgment in evaluating public policy issues.
