Economics

The branch of economics, categorized as a social science, primarily focuses on the complex processes behind the production, distribution and consumption of various goods or services. The term itself originates from the Greek words “oikos” and “nomos”, meaning house and law.

One of the commonly accepted definitions of economics is the one given by Lionel Charles Robbins (1898 – 1984), a British economist and head of the economics department at the London School of Economics. He states that “Economics is a science which studies human behavior as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses”.

The primary purpose of the documentaries and video materials compiled in this category is to show you how the world of economics works. From micro to macro business systems, there are a number of systems in which the rules of economics are applied.

With the growing complexity of business systems and the manner in which business is being conducted worldwide, there is also an ever growing demand for the economical apparatus to accompany those systems.

Now, let us focus on the practical examples of the development and function of the economics in everyday life; the causes, assets and results of the application of the above mentioned science.

Enjoy the tour across Canada and see the experiences of two volunteers at the organic farms and the position of the small scale farming compared to the large scale ones crucial for the economy of the country.

Watch the documentary on the economical manufacturing collapse in Detroit and see the consequences if it. Discover will the people of Detroit succeed in their final attempt to recover from this disaster and restore the economical stability this great city one had.

Find out the horrible truth behind the manufacturing one of the most popular products in the world. The chocolate that is being consumed every day worldwide hides an awful secret that the public was made aware of in 2001; the workforce on the cocoa farms in the Ivory Coast is mainly consisted of African children who are victims of slavery, trafficking and various other forms of abuse.
