APPLICATION OF ECONOMIC CONCEPTS. Institution: Name: Date: Role of economists as policymakers and as scientists. Economists plays very vital roles in the economy of a country. This is because economists have a broad knowledge on how the economic resources can be allocated in the to various sectors in the country hence boost the economic performance of the firm. Economists are scientists because they are able to develop models as well as hypothesis that can be tested using data. The models often result into predictions which may be accurate or inaccurate. Through such models the economists are able to determine the effects of various policies implemented by the government in a country. For example, how the consumption of gasoline changes when the government increases the taxes for the gasoline. The models developed by the economists can be used to determine impact of such move by the government. Economists are also policy makers in a country.

The economists act as advisors to the policy makers in a country in order to help them run the government effectively. Policies regarding taxation of items in the market can be used to regulate the consumption in the market. This is because an increase in tax for a certain product will automatically lead to increase in its costs hence reducing its consumption in the market.

This makes the economists to be policymakers in a country. The society uses various principles to allocate resources among its need. One of the principle its uses is the tradeoff principle. This involves giving up on one thing in order to acquire another. The costs of the forgone item are usually referred to as the opportunity co...
