Economics Primer


The Economics Primer is one of a series of National Economic Development (NED) Manuals. The NED Manuals are important resource documents for performing economic analysis within the Corps of Engineer's planning framework.

As the Corps of Engineers strives to improve its planning and decision making, economic analysis is one of it's most reliable and important tools. A critical element of successful economic analysis is communication with others; in gathering data, making assumptions, developing models and presenting results.

This Economics Primer presents the rudiments of the science of economics and its use in the Corps of Engineers.
