Scientific knowledge covers all aspects of life. Economics, in particular, addresses the choices, the behavior and the interactions of human beings in a wide range of circumstances, and even the most unsuspected themes can be subject to the scrutiny of this science. In this brief note we discuss what Economics is all about, resorting to a small set of contributions published in the recent past in a top Economics journal, namely the Journal of Economic Perspectives.
