Over time, people became interested in the purpose of their actions, ways and means of achieving it. Thus, the 16th century marked the beginning of the birth of the first economic schools.

In the 20th century, the famous English economist Lionel Robbins defined the subject of economic science and called it the problem of choosing between goals and means, the problem of optimal distribution of resources to meet these goals and the formation of mechanisms that carry out such distribution.
