Economics is the social science that studies the production and consumption of goods and services. Economics focuses on the behaviour and interactions of economic agents. Microeconomics analyzes basic elements in the economy, including individual agents and markets, their interactions, the outcomes of interactions. Individual agents may include, for example, firms and sellers. Macroeconomics analyzes the entire economy and issues affecting it, including unemployment of resources, economic growth, the public policies that address these issues. See glossary of economics. Other broad distinctions within economics include those between positive economics, describing "what is", normative economics, advocating "what ought to be". Economic analysis can be applied throughout society, in business, health care, government. Economic analysis is sometimes applied to such diverse subjects as crime, the family, politics, social institutions, war and the environment; the discipline was renamed in the late 19th century due to Alfred Marshall, from "political economy" to "economics" as a shorter term for "economic science".
At that time, it became more open to rigorous thinking and made increased use of mathematics, which helped support efforts to have it accepted as a science and as a separate discipline outside of political science and other social sciences. There are a variety of modern definitions of economics. Scottish philosopher Adam Smith defined what was called political economy as "an inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations", in particular as: a branch of the science of a statesman or legislator a plentiful revenue or subsistence for the people... to supply the state or commonwealth with a revenue for the publick services. Jean-Baptiste Say, distinguishing the subject from its public-policy uses, defines it as the science of production and consumption of wealth. On the satirical side, Thomas Carlyle coined "the dismal science" as an epithet for classical economics, in this context linked to the pessimistic analysis of Malthus. John Stuart Mill defines the subject in a social context as: The science which traces the laws of such of the phenomena of society as arise from the combined operations of mankind for the production of wealth, in so far as those phenomena are not modified by the pursuit of any other object.
Alfred Marshall provides a still cited definition in his textbook Principles of Economics that extends analysis beyond wealth and from the societal to the microeconomic level: Economics is a study of man in the ordinary business of life. It enquires how he uses it. Thus, it is on the one side, the study of wealth and on the other and more important side, a part of the study of man. Lionel Robbins developed implications of what has been termed "erhaps the most accepted current definition of the subject": Economics is a science which studies human behaviour as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses. Robbins describes the definition as not classificatory in "pick out certain kinds of behaviour" but rather analytical in "focus attention on a particular aspect of behaviour, the form imposed by the influence of scarcity." He affirmed that previous economists have centred their studies on the analysis of wealth: how wealth is created and consumed. But he said that economics can be used to study other things, such as war, that are outside its usual focus.
This is because war has as the goal winning it, generates both cost and benefits. If the war is not winnable or if the expected costs outweigh the benefits, the deciding actors may never go to war but rather explore other alternatives. We cannot define economics as the science that studies wealth, crime and any other field economic analysis can be applied to; some subsequent comments criticized the definition as overly broad in failing to limit its subject matter to analysis of markets. From the 1960s, such comments abated as the economic theory of maximizing behaviour and rational-choice modelling expanded the domain of the subject to areas treated in other fields. There are other criticisms as well, such as in scarcity not accounting for the macroeconomics of high unemployment. Gary Becker, a contributor to the expansion of economics into new areas, describes the approach he favours as "combin assumptions of maximizing behaviour, stable preferences, market equilibrium, used relentlessly and unflinchingly."
One commentary characterizes the remark as making economics an approach rather than a subject matter but with great specificity as to the "choice process and the type of social interaction that analysis involves." The same source reviews a range of definitions included in principles of economics textbooks and concludes that the lack of agreement need not affect the subject-matter that the texts treat. A

Saint Theresa's College of Quezon City
St. Theresa's College, Quezon City, Philippines, is a Catholic private school for girls run by the Missionary Sisters of the "Immaculati Cordis Mariae" or Immaculate Heart of Mary, established on January 7, 1947 but opened only on in June 1947. STC offers programs from the kindergarten through the secondary levels; as an ICM school, its educational program draws inspiration from Mother Marie Louise De Meester, Foundress of ICM. Its students are called “Theresians”, from the name of its patroness St. Teresa of Avila. Heading the school for the ICM sisters is Sr. Josefina Nebres, the school directress; the school is a member of the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines and the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools and Universities. Mother Marie Louise De Meester and her novices arrived on the shores of Tagudin, Ilocos Sur on June 21, 1910. Tagudin became the foundation of the ICM missionary work throughout the Philippines which gave birth to institutions of learning in the country including the different campuses of St. Theresa's College.
Mother Marie Louise De Meester founded St. Theresa's College Manila in 1915 at the invitation of the Most Reverend Jeremiah James Harty, the first American Archbishop of Manila; when World War II wrought havoc on the St. Theresa's College in San Marcelino, leaving it in ruins, little hope was left for the rebuilding of its physical structure. While St. Theresa's College Manila was re-built, re-opened and continued to be run by the Belgian Sisters until 1980, steps were taken after WWII to look for a property which would be larger than the San Marcelino Compound in order to accommodate an ever-growing population of students. In January 1946, a contract was signed for the purchase of a property consisting of five blocks, in Sta. Mesa Heights, Quezon City. A rudimentary makeshift building used by the U. S. Army, which occupied the place, was utilized temporarily for the classrooms of St. Theresa's College, Quezon City, for the quarters of the ICM sisters. January 7, 1947, marked the establishment of STCQC.
However, the school was opened in June 1947. St. Theresa's College provides both academic, non-academic, extra-curricular activities for their students' learning; the STC QC Grade School is an elementary school for girls. It has facilities and classrooms for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6; the practicum emphasizes experience-based learning. Theories are learned and applied to practical situations or vice versa, through observation, workshops, team research, media demonstrations and educational trips. Students interested in Sciences and Writing are invited to join an organization for enthusiasts, called SINAG. In this organization, the students' talents and skills in a particular field are cultivated and developed. SINAG in Science, Performing Arts, Creative-Writing helps students enhance their potentials in various subjects; the High School Department is a Catholic college-preparatory school for female students. The campus features a library, the Instructional Media Center, Biology laboratory, Chemistry laboratory, Physics laboratory, computer laboratories, High School Chapel, cooking rooms, sewing room and cafeteria, clinic and the covered court.
On a field of gold and blue are imposed the cross and three stars. The blue stands for faithful courage, the gold proclaims jubilant victory - always - through love; the Latin cross within the seal stands for the victory with Christ over evil. The gold of the cross stands for the love for Christ who rose from the dead; the three stars stand for the three theological virtues: faith and charity. The inscription around the seal reads Virtute, Artibus Floreat -, Latin for "education in and through virtue and the arts." The seal is a badge showing the mountain peak of Carmel, linked with the school's patron saint, St. Teresa of Avila, the first woman doctor of the Church; the lyrics of the STC Hymn was written by Aurea Carballo-Gonzalez while music was composed by Angeles Rodriguez. The Family Council is the official organization of the parents of the students of St. Theresa's College, they are the ones. The Family council celebrated their Golden Jubilee in 2011 The Sambayan Educational Foundation, Inc. or SEFI was organized in 1972 by the Missionary Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and a group of STCQC parents and alumnae which called forth the school to make available the educational program to deserving families from the lower-middle-income group by way of socialized tuition fee.
Its main objective is to make available quality education for less privileged but deserving students. The SEFI program is not a scholarship program, it is a reduced tuition fee scheme for twelve years of schooling from Grade 1 until Grade 12 for qualified lower-middle-income groups. It is the only such program in existence in the Philippines today. Applicants have to pass a rigorous set of criteria as well as entrance exams to qualify. Once a student has been accepted into the program, a social worker monitors her progress and checks on the family environment; the initial seed money was provided by the ICM congregation. STCQC parents and friends have made substantial contributions to the fund through the years. Aicelle Santos - singer, actress Lydia B.
