Nationalekonomiska metoder och modeller tillämpas inom de mest skiftande områden som kriminalitet, barnuppfostran och drogmissbruk. Ett skäl till ämnets framgång är dess användning av matematik. Nationalekonomins formalisering synes dock även ha inneburit insnävade beteendeantaganden mot en abstrakt Homo Economicus, där många fenomen och mekanismer som diskuterades ingående av klassikerna till stor del ignorerats. Genombrottet för beteendeekonomin (behavioral economics) på senare tid har inneburit en återgång till en rikare och mer relevant mikroekonomisk teori. Nationalekonomer bör fortsätta studera frågor som inte brukar betraktas som traditionellt ekonomiska, men det är minst lika viktigt att influenser från andra vetenskaper får fortsätta att berika nationalekonomin.
