Field of study

Economics focuses on the utilisation of our resources - whether it concerns natural resources, labour force or production equipment. 

We investigate how the economy actually works: the mixed economy we have in our own country, the economic conditions of other countries, in addition to the world economy. We also analyse the possibilities for increasing added value and how to distribute the outcome more justly when satisfying human needs.
