Economy and politics are two topics that are strongly interconnected. The decisions made by political bodies have an influence on the economy of a nation, and how well the economy is doing is usually seen as a direct reflection of political policies and the success of the government in power. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is seen as an indicator as to how strong a nation is, employment figures indicate the health of an economy, and national elections can influence the growth of a country for years to come. The Economy and Politics industry covers all manner of topics, such as unemployment, GDP, government finances and employment, and policy.
