Department of Economics
How does a nation control unemployment? Should a government increase consumer spending by giving money to business owners or to their customers? Economics is the study of using scarce resources to satisfy a world of unlimited wants and needs.
Susquehanna University’s Department of Economics offers programs that challenge students to think logically about real world issues such as unemployment and the delicate balance between supply and demand.
