Business & Economy

Business & Economics


Both business and economics are interconnected. Business activities are influenced by economic factors such as supply and demand, inflation, interest rates, and government policies. On the other hand, businesses contribute to economic growth and development by creating jobs, generating income, and producing goods and services that meet the needs and wants of society.

Students and professionals in both fields use principles from economics to make informed business decisions, and businesses, in turn, play a crucial role in shaping the economic landscape of a region or a country.
