This sentence needs work on the English side

English translation is nonsensical.

Makes perfect sense to me.

Maybe what you mean is "The thing about the economy is that it's economic" which is still a strange sentence, but its better than the original.

Based on the Korean, they don't use "about" in that way. I think it's more basic: "Something related to the economy is economic" as in economic ideas, not efficient.

I get why they would make a sentence like this, but translating it to English makes it a bit of a stretch to learn what the grammar is here.

A thing about economy is (called) economic.
