It shows how scarce resources can be used to increase wealth and human welfare. The central focus of economics is on scarcity of resources and choices among their alternative uses.The resources or inputs available to produce goods are limited or scarce. This scarcity induces people to make choices among alternatives, and the knowledge of economics is used to compare the alternatives for choosing the best among them. For example, a farmer can grow paddy, sugarcane, banana, cotton etc. In his garden land. But he has to choose a crop depending upon the availability of irrigation water.Two major factors are responsible for the emergence of economic problems. They are: i) the existence of unlimited human wants and ii) the scarcity of available resources. The numerous human wants are to be satisfied through the scarce resources available in nature. Economics deals with how the numerous human wants are to be satisfied with limited resources. Thus, the science of economics centres on want - effort - satisfaction. Economics not only covers the decision making behaviour of individuals but also the macro variables of economies like national income, public finance, international trade and so on. A. DEFINITIONS OF ECONOMICS Several economists have defined economics taking different aspects into account. The word ‘Economics’ was derived from two Greek words, oikos (a house) and nemein (to manage) which would mean ‘managing an household’using the limited funds available, in the most satisfactory manner possible.i) Wealth DefinitionAdam smith (1723 - 1790), in his book “An Inquiry into Nature and Causes of Wealth of Nations” (1776) defined economics as the science of wealth. He explained how a nation’s wealth is created. He considered that the individual in the society wants to promote only his own gain and in this, he is led by an “invisible hand” to promote the interests of the society though he has no real intention to promote the society’s interests. Criticism: Smith defined economics only in terms of wealth and not in terms of human welfare. Ruskin and Carlyle condemned economics as a ‘dismal science’, as it taught selfishness which was against ethics. However, now, wealth is considered only to be a mean to end, the end being the human welfare. Hence, wealth definition was rejected and the emphasis was shifted from ‘wealth’ to‘welfare’. ii) Welfare Definition Alfred Marshall (1842 - 1924) wrote a book “Principles of Economics”(1890) in which he defined “Political Economy” or Economics is a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life; it examines that part of individual and social action which is most closely connected with the attainment and with the use of the material requisites of well being”. The important features of Marshall’s definition are as follows: SCE 1 Department of civil engineering www.Vidyarthiplus.com
