Is your question incomplete? Anyhow,

Atom economy is about how wasteful the reaction is. If your reaction has low atom economy, it will always be wasteful; most of the product made is simply not valuable to you. This is a chemical problem, not a practical one.
The unwanted products are a waste of money/resources and an environmental problem because waste has to be stored or disposed of safely.
Yield is about how much product was successfully made. If your yield is low, this is probably a practical problem, such as not enough time to react or your conditions may need to be changed.
