Biographical or historical data
The Brigham Young Economics Department has been in existence almost since the school first began in 1875. Between 1957 and 1973, at the advent of computers, the undergraduate offerings in this department jumped from five courses to twenty-four, the full-time faculty increased approximately 250 percent, and the number of faculty with doctorates more than quadrupled. Economics examines how societies choose to allocate scarce resources among competing uses. A broad range of contemporary policy issues are studied in fields such as: food, agriculture, and natural resource economics; economic development and growth, international trade and finance, economic history, the organization of industries, the development and efficiency of law, business cycles, labor markets, and public and private finance.
