Economics at Queen's
Think ahead of the curve
Economics is a broad discipline that seeks to answer the biggest questions that we face in both business and society. For example, why are some countries rich whilst others remain poor? Or when should policymakers intervene in people’s lives in order to minimise crime? Economics provides us with a framework and philosophy from which we can construct answers to such questions. Economics is about developing models that help us to understand the past, so we can create a better future.
