What does an Economist do?

In the enrolment period this question is always asked: what does an economist do? Answers usually are very diverse, still, in addition to the fact that an economist works in a bank and deals with money, not much more is said. Being an economist, however, is an occupation much more diverse than this.

Economics is a branch of social sciences that deals with the economic system, its operation and the satisfaction of the needs of the actors of economy, like individuals, households, businesses and states. Why is this important? Goods available in the world are scarce, so economists must optimise not only production but also distribution. Accordingly, economists analyse problems and work on their solutions, drafting all possible options. Such a problem might be for example what to produce, how much, how, and how all these products should be distributed among the respective groups of society.
