Why I enrolled for Economics


I have always thought of economics as a great study of how the world works. There is one and the most important reason why I chose this class.

The  reason is that economics is easy compared to other social studies subjects such as history and geography. When some subject is ‘easy’ to study, it should not be recognized as bad or inferior  subject. In fact, economics is comparably easy to study because of its feature of relevance to everyday life unlike history or geography.

In short, because economics is an easy and relevant study of our daily life, I enrolled for economics.

    It’s a great thing that you understand economics as a study about how the world works. Many people, sadly, believe it’s about money-making or predicting stock markets’ behaviour etc.
    Economics is not releavnt nowadays. It was, is, and will be relevant alway, until there are limited resourses.
    And one more thing – it’ll be great if economics are as easy fro you as you think. But let me warn you – UNDERSTANDING economics actually IS NOT easy. People got Nobel prizes for what you are going to study. The whole world doesn’t know what to do to solve certain problems like crises etc. And when they do know that, it’s not often easy to implement the knowledge.
    So good luck and don’t think of economics as of something very easy. It’s a constantly developing sphere of knowledge and it is constantly evolving. Besides, it requires certain knowledge in math, stats, history, law and many more. Start thinkin deeply at the very beginning and you are not likely to have any serious problems with studying. But again, the real understanding is what’s not easy at all.

      Thank you for your in-depth reply to my blog post. I do realize that Economics is the kind of subject that should not be taken easily. However, I will try my best in order to be familiar with any economic topic and try to learn adaquate amount of knowledge involved in studying economics. Thank you again for your thoughtful comment.
