Welcome to the homepage for Economics courses at Long Beach City College.

Although there are only a few course offerings in the Economics area, the courses are key components of a variety of certificates and degree concentrations. With additional coursework, students will be prepared for either a professional career or further education.

Course Offerings

 

Economics is the study of choices subject to the allocation of scarce resources in an environment of unlimited wants.  At the core of all economic questions is the concept of “choice.”  Economists theorize that scarcity, the fact that useful possessions are limited, forces all economic entities to make choices. Scarcity necessitates choice.

Economists study choices made by consumers, firms and governments.  More specifically, why certain choices are made, what are the benefits and costs of their choices including how much is given up for the choices that are made.
