"They are writing an article about economics."

Translation:Ils écrivent un article sur l'économie.

"ils écrivent un article sur les sciences économiques"?

Both Collins (https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-french/economics) and Larousse (http://www.larousse.fr/dictionnaires/francais-anglais/science/70678) suggest economics = les sciences économiques. Reported.


It seems to be ambiguous whether they are writing an article about economics or about the economy. Oh well, English contains much more ambiguity!
