The purpose of this paper is to discover if in the process of teaching Economics, especially General Economics, in higher education, the Empathy plays an important role, more important than in other fields, such as technical, medical, IT. Starting with my own experience, altogether with of other colleagues, economists and authors in the field, I’ve tried to support the idea that teaching Economics (basic Economics) is imbued with empathy, because in our world, in our times, it is better to have economic knowledge from the essential consideration that everything that surrounds us is an economic phenomenon and fact. Also, gathering the adequate economic vocabulary, the ease to use, or even juggling the specific economic terms and institutions, but whose meaning was well remembered, also denotes a quality of the initial communication of the information.
