  • About

    "The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed, the world is ruled by little else."
    —John Maynard Keynes

    "The man of the future is the man of statistics and the master of economics."
    —Oliver Wendell Holmes

    Economics at Yeshiva University helps students develop the analytical tools to understand how modern economies allocate scarce resources to produce goods and services, and how economic performance is affected by policies, technology and institutions.

    The economics major provides ideal training for anyone interested in law, business, finance or government, as well as for graduate studies in economics. It also provides students with a rigorous way of thinking about individual, business and household decision-making. For non-majors, the introductory sequence of microeconomics and macroeconomics is an essential component of a liberal arts education, and provides the background for our wide array of electives.
