Scarcity Drives Economics

An economy is a system for producing and distributing goods and services, but it only exists when there is scarcity and choices must be made regarding the use of limited resources.

Without scarcity, there is no need for economizing, and thus, no economics. In other words, economics studies the choices societies make regarding the use of scarce resources that have alternative uses.

Insurance: Paying Someone to Assume Your Risks

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
