The Use of Financial Economic and Economical

When writing about a company’s or household’s money, use financial <the Nasdaq collapse brought financial ruin to many dotcom companies>. When writing about managing resources (including money) on a large scale, regional or nationwide, use economic <rising energy prices often signal an economic downturn>. Reserve economical to mean “thrifty.”
