Economic activity Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Economics is the social science that analyzes the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. The term economics comes from the Ancient Greek  (, "management of a household, administration") from (, "house") + (, "custom" or "law"), hence "rules of the house(hold)". Political economy was the earlier name for the subject, but economists in the late 19th century suggested "economics" as a shorter term for "economic science" that also avoided a narrow political-interest connotation and as similar in form to "mathematics", "ethics", and so forth.
