  1. Every citizen of planet earth should understand as much about economics as possible. Without it, you cannot do anything, either for yourself, your family, your profession (or employer, or company or whatever), or the place you live (earth, in case some rethugs do not acknowledge that). Economics is even important for spiritual life: we have to know what “value” is or our existence has been for naught.

    Economics is not a science. Economics is social science, like sociology. It is always in flux, never mathematically provable (Einstein’s theory of relativity, which ultimately brought us nuclear energy and nuclear weapons, is provable). Economics is closer to philosophy than to science.

    Get with the program. Humans have very limited cognitive ability, but this is one thing we can’t afford to ignore.
