Economics is about choice and the impact of those choices on individuals and society. The field relates to the decisions made as individuals or families and the structures created by governments and firms. Studying the economic way of thinking can provide the student with the ability to make better choices and become an informed citizen. Butler Community College’s Economics Department offers classes in Microeconomics, which focuses on the small economy of individuals and businesses; Macroeconomics, which focuses on the large economy of the government and the Federal Reserve; and Engineering Economics, which focuses on economic principles and their application to engineering projects.
