EtymologyEdit

From Latin oeconomia, from Ancient Greek οἰκονομία ‎(oikonomía, management of a household, administration), from οἶκος ‎(oîkos, house) + νόμος ‎(nómos, law) (surface analysis eco- +‎ -nomie). The first recorded sense of the word economie, found in a work possibly composed in 1440, is “the management of economic affairs”, in this case, of a monastery.
