“The theory of economics is a method rather than a doctrine, an apparatus of mind, a technique of thinking, which helps its possessor to draw correct conclusions.”
- John Maynard Keynes
The study of economics is not only limited to the textbooks and courses instructed in school and colleges. It has always been relevant and correlated with everything and everyone, from an individual (Micro) to the entire society (Macro) at large. Economics as a sphere governs everything, from how we earn and save for posterity, to how a society is run by the government. Managing Economy through policy interventions in a country can make or break it, as we keep seeing in numerous instances all over the world. And this is something that the world is recognizing more and more every day. Political economy is an extremely important part of the state, and determines how a state will allocate, distribute and stabilize, economically, and socially.
