Can economic thinking make you a better manager? A better person? Economics is about more than making and selling products efficiently. Having a foundation in economic thinking allows you to understand individual behaviors and motivations giving you the ability to adapt to meet the needs of your customers, partners, and employees. Being a great manager also comes from being a great person. Being a character-driven leader means you create value for yourself by creating value for others.
