Week One Article Analysis ECO/365 January 16, 2012 Week One Article Analysis David Colander defines economics as "the study of how human beings coordinate their wants and desires, given the decision-making mechanisms, social customs, and political realities of the society” (Colander, 2010, p. 4). Coordination in this definition refers to production content, method, recipients, and even quantity. To think like an economist one must analyze every situation by comparing the costs and benefits and make any decisions based on those findings (Colander, 2010). The study of microeconomics zeroes in on the individual and analyzes how economic forces affect the choices he or she makes.
Microeconomics focuses on supply and demand. A company would look at ways to increase production so that the company could decrease their prices compared to competitors. This would adjust the equilibrium price of products by increasing the quantity that is available. This allows the company the capability of passing price savings to consumers. Macroeconomics is used as the economy changes such as with inflation. Inflation would cause a company to have a boost of cost in materials from producing their product. This creates a change in quantity to be provided as supply has to be adjusted to meet the decrease of demand from the effects on equilibrium price.
Economics is the branch of knowledge concerned with the production, consumption, and transfer of wealth. Economics can even be used a few different ways. They are the study of scarcity, the study of how people use resources, or the study of decision-making. One of the central tenets of economics is that people want certain things and will change their behavior to get those things according to American Economic Association. The economic study ranges from the very small to the very large. Much of economics involves the use of data gathered by governments, businesses, or in the laboratory to test the hypotheses about whether a certain program, event, or incentive will have the expected effect. Our nation is affected by economics in the way that you work, spend money, eat, simply just how you live on a regular

Economics in My Life When I was first given this assignment I was extremely perplexed at how I would even begin to finish it. I had no idea how economics related to my life in anyway. I hadn’t thought about it critically and I struggling terribly. Thanks to some much needed help from a fellow classmate, he allowed me to get an idea of things from his own essay. After reading not one, but two other essays, I was so surprised at how oblivious I had been. I never realized that just about everything that goes on in my daily life is, in fact, economics. I never realized that from the things I buy to the money I earn from working is all economics. The things I miss out of while working or going to school is a complete opportunity cost. Or even
