Economic vs economical

Although these words seem similar, they convey different meanings.

Economic can have two meanings: 1) 'relating to the production, development, and management of material wealth of a country', e.g. economic history, the country's economic future or 2) 'bringing accordingly big profit', e.g. We must charge an economic price.

Economical, on the other hand, means 'sparing, without extravagance', e.g. This car is very economical on petrol.
