Wait, what IS economics anyways?

I read this article
and I'm fascinated by the effects of current events on how money moves through the world and how money seems to affect other money. I've found a new interest! But, I don't even know what it's called! How can I study this?

I love learning about connections, relationships, causes and effects. It's suddenly occuring to me that the world of finances is just bursting with those things. I really want to pursue this, but I don't even know what it is. Is it business? Finance? The stock market? Economics? Some other thing? None of those terms really mean anything to me other than an image of a guy in a nice suit. So what should I be investigating and learning about? If you could point me to some layperson-friendly, jargon-light, not-dry starter materials, that would be great too!
