What is the Economy?

You might hear the word “economy” on the news. Sometimes, you hear the economy is good. Sometimes, you hear it is bad. What does that mean?

The economy is about how people make and spend money. The economy is made of people who buy things and sell things. Stores sell goods. Goods are things that we can buy, like these toys.
