Economic is the study of economic phenomena. The typical economic phenomena are unemployment, inflation, trade friction, industry change, taxes and ect,, which we encounter through the media everyday. These phenomena caused by human action are different from natural phenomena. In addition, the economic phenomena occur not by an isolated and independent behavior but rather by interactive behavior of many people. Economic phenomena are different from any other phenomena of politics, culture, and religion because they characteristically occur around production. And people make a variety of relationships around production. People cooperate each other when they produce but often disagree when they distribute. Economics tries to answer these questions: ‘How have the relationships among people regarding production historically developed?’ and ‘How can we systematically understand the economic phenomena around us?’ Furthermore, we want to ponder the question together with the students majoring in economics : What kind of effort is needed to improve these economic phenomena?
