Nice one guys.

What's the difference between economical and economic?

Doesn't 'Economical' and 'Political' go together.

if we go by dictionary both economical and economic can have same meaning like "aspects of social, political, and economical life"

but economical is generally used with respect to "Avoiding waste","cheap"
like "an economical meal"; "an economical shopper"

and economic generally used as "economic growth"


Doesn't 'Economical' and 'Political' go together.


both are adjectives so we have to go my meaning.
