From [[w:Template:lang:la language|Template:lang:la]][[Category:Template:lang:la derivations]] oeconomia from Ancient Greek οἰκονομία (oikonomia), “‘management of a househould, administration’”) from οἶκος (oikos), “‘house’”) + νόμος (nomos), “‘law’”). The first recorded sense of the word "economy", found in a work possibly composed in 1440, is "the management of economic affairs", in this case, of a monastery.
