Points to Remember

Economics is a science that studies human behavior which aims at allocation of scarce resources in such a way that consumer can maximise their satisfaction, producers can maximise their profits and society can maximise its social welfare. It is about making choice in the presence of scarcity.

Scarcity means shortage of goods and resources in relation to their demand.

Scarcity is the root of all Economic problem.

Father of Economics Adam Smith provided wealth definition of economics( Book- The Wealth of Nations, 1776):- Economics is an enquiry into the factors that determine the wealth of a country.

Scarcity definition given by Lionel Robbins(1932):- Economics is a science that studies human behaviour as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have the alternative uses.

Growth definition given by Paul A samuelson:- Economics is the study of how man and the society chooses with or without the use of money, to employ scarce productive resources which could have the alternative uses to provide various commodities overtime and distribute them for consumption now and in future among various people and the groups of the society. 

Resources are :
(a) Scarce / limited and
(b) Have alternatives uses
