Department of Economics

In the Department of Economics within Birmingham Business School, we emphasise Responsible Economics. Every decision we make, as individuals and right up to the level of global business and government, is based on scarcity and choice. The world has limited resources – and they’re becoming more limited every day. As ‘responsible economists’ we must ensure those resources are used strategically and fairly to make people and society as a whole better off.
