Currently, there are different definitions of economics that reflects the evolving view of the subjects and the different economists' point of views. However, the discipline is usually defined as a social science which is related to the production, distribution and consumption of products and services. Additionally, the subject studies how individuals, nations and companies make choices on allocating resources to reach their goals and satisfy their needs.
Economics is divided into two areas: macroeconomics and microeconomics. The first is focused on the overall economy, considering either precise geographical regions, countries or the whole world. Instead, the second concentrates on the individual consumers and their decisions. Usually, the individuals studied by microeconomics are single persons, households, companies or governmental institutions.
Finance is defined as the study of money, investments and other financial tools. Usually, the subject is divided into three categories: public finance, personal finance and corporate finance. Recently, terms like social and behavioural finance are becoming popular.

Finally, personal finance studies how people manage their money, and it includes all the financial decisions an individual usually take.
