"Political Economy or Economics is a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life. It examines that part of individual & social action which is most closely connected with the attainment & with the use of material requisites of well-being. Thus, it is on one side the study of wealth and on the other important side it is the study of man."

Marshall is the founder of neo-classical school of thought (or the welfare school of economics), and his followers are of the view that on the one hand economics is the study of wealth and on the other hand, it is the study of man, who is more important than wealth. Further they are of the view that material welfare is the primary aim of economics. So economics is the study of material welfare.
