Economics

When most of us think of economics, we think of money. But the world of economics is far more complex than just cash.

Currency, natural resources, trade, scarcity, credit, and supply/demand are all around us each day and play a central role in our culture.

Architecture is most apparent in dwellings, meeting places, boats, and other structures.
