Sacramento City College Economics

Economics is the study of how we work to get the biggest bang for our buck, or how we transform scarce resources into goods and services to satisfy the most pressing of our infinite wants, and how we distribute those goods and services amongst ourselves. Most economists spend at least some of or all of their work day in an office environment, working on projects and research and meeting with clients or coworkers.  The stereotype of economists as “stodgy old professors” has undergone an evolution as clients and managers work side-by-side with economists to develop new business opportunities.
