Reasons for the confusion about the relationship between economics and business:
Many economics departments are located in business schools.
   Many economists are employed by businesses in a variety of capacities.
      Because businesses account for much economic activity, economists study all aspects of business.
         Most of the areas studied by economists provide insights that are useful in business.
            Much of the language used by business is "borrowed" from economics.
               Popular movies and TV shows further the confusion.
