Chapter 2 Questions for Review answers 1. Economics is like a science because economists use the scientific method. They devise  theories, collect data, and then analyze these data in an attempt to verify or refute their  theories about how the world works. Economists use theory and observation like other  scientists, but they are limited in their ability to run controlled experiments. Instead, they must  rely on natural experiments. 2. Economists make assumptions to simplify problems without substantially affecting the  answer. Assumptions can make the world easier to understand. 3. An economic model cannot describe reality exactly because it would be too complicated to  understand. A model is a simplification that allows the economist to see what is truly  important. 4. There are many possible answers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
