According to the American Economic Association, Economics can actually be defined a few different ways: it's the study of scarcity, the study of how people use resources, or the study of decision-making.

Investopedia defines Personal Finance as all financial decisions and activities of an individual or household, including budgeting, insurance, mortgage planning, savings and retirement planning.
