Economics, broadly defined, is concerned with the description and analysis of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services. Also related is how individuals and groups make choices about these goods and services, and the consequences of their decisions. Decisions might be explicitly in regard to money and resources, but the same principles pertain to any kind of decision. The general form of the problem is that wants are bigger than resources, and even if two choices are both free, there is an opportunity cost in terms of deploying resources or focus into one area and not another. The same structure of decision-making among multiple options, with there being an opportunity cost to the road not taken, may persist regardless of domain, whether in classical economics or distributed ledger economics.
