About this course
Economics deals with the issues of our daily lives and is a handy tool to get an objective picture of the world. The examples of the issues economists mainly study are the following: Why do the apartment complexes in the Gangnam area come with more expensive price tags than those in other areas? Why do many domestic companies seek to expand their businesses? What is the reason behind seasonal changes in job opportunities? Why do prices and currency value fluctuate? What kind of stocks should you buy for higher yields?
Though it is deeply related to our daily lives, economics is also regarded as a scientific and systematic field of study for its precise methods of research. Economics is based on precise analysis as well as a sense of rationality. For this reason, economics can be readily applied to understanding and forecasting various situations. That is the reason why economics is called "the queen of social science" and the only field of study in social science that has its own Nobel Prize category.
