3 ways to express economics: english people buy less tea when the price of tea rises, algebra/equations-qnt=1000-2pt. Why is economics a social science: social: people, science: use scientific method. The economist role: when trying to explain the world, they are scientists, when trying to change the world, they are policy advisors. Positive vs. normative statements: positive statements: attempt to describe the world as it is. The distance from here to brampton is 100 km : normative statements: attempt to describe how the world should be. You can not factually check these statements. I. e. you should go to cuba instead of mexico . Why economist disagree: differences in scientific judgements. Disagree about the validity of alternative positive theories about how the world works: differences in values. Have different values and different normative views about what policy should try to accomplish. Map of the city: first model: the circular flow diagram.
