There is a huge difference between chemistry and economics - chemistry is a pure science, and it deals with the study of chemicals and how they react with one another and with the world around them. Economics is the study of financial systems and economic cycles - it has nothing to do with science, and nothing to do with chemicals. These types of courses and degree programs are both taught at universities and colleges, but most people who take economics will not take chemistry - and vice versa. While chemists may be interested in economics and the ways that economic ups and down affect grants for chemistry research, as well as the price of chemistry-based commercial formulas, they will not need to know chemistry to do their daily jobs effectively.

  • How to learn more

A simple glance through a chemistry or economics textbook will reveal the glaring differences between both fields of study. More reading will show the basic principles of both types of subjects. In chemistry, the elements will be studied, and in economics, different types of marketplaces will be examined. Both subjects may provide historical perspectives - certain decades will feature special dates when exciting developments in economics or chemistry occurred.

  • Listen to experts

There are plenty of people pontificating about these fields of study and how they affect the world we live in every day. To get the benefit of these experts and their education and experience, seek out YouTube videos of lectures or speeches, or find some great podcasts on economics and chemistry topics. The Internet is a great resource for all manner of chemistry and economics information, and much of this information is available free of charge.

Economics and chemistry are apples and oranges, so comparing them really doesn't serve any purpose; however, both fields are very important for mankind.
