About the Economics Collection

Economics covers the history of economic thought, economic theory, econometrics, public finance, international economics and monetary theory and practice. Personal finance and consumer economics are taken care of by the Funk Library. Overlaps in this area include parts of labor economics with the labor and employment relations collection, welfare economics with the education collection, and urban and regional economics with the city planning and landscape architecture collection. There is also a slight overlap with the Law Library pertaining to the legal and economic aspects of antitrust and monopoly and the broad area of governmental regulation of business.
