Economy is the state of a country or region in terms of the production and consumption of goods and services and the supply of money. It is a large set of inter-related economic production and consumption activities which aid in determining how scarce resources are allocated. The economy encompasses everything related to the production and consumption of goods and services in an area. The economy and the factors affecting the economy have spawned one of the largest fields of study in human history - economics. The study of economics can be broken into two major areas of focus, microeconomics and macroeconomics.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
