No; I said a course you're doing is partially for people who can't get into Maths, or don't think they can do Maths. I realise you're not that way inclined and even if you can do a Maths Degree which I wouldn't know whether or not you could then you would do Economics but I believe for many its a Maths Degree for people who can't do a proper one. I know it involves a lot of Maths - that's why I compared it I also know its not a Maths Degree and is something that somebody unable to get a Maths Degree would choose.

I know what Capitalism is; it is a system which allows a Free-Market and while nobody, at least on the Internet, knows what this means or gives to people to ability to do thats all I as a person need to know anyway.

Haha - if I knew the meaning of reality I would not be here talking to you, or indeed on this Forum, would I?

You don't obviously know shit. A lot of economics is tied into a lot of math heavy based courses, and math courses themselves. In fact many economists do double minors in both math and some kind of social science, like civil affairs or urban development.

I'm a poli sci major, as well as an economics and urban development double minor. For people who can't get into maths? Obviously you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. A lot of these courses require the exact same as a a math degree. And what is it with these run-on sentences? Can you properly break down a sentence? Who can't do a proper one? Pardon me, but you are an imbecilic jerk. You can't compare shit. It doesn't involve lots of maths, it involves an excessively huge amount. In fact math majors find economics difficult. The formulas are so excessively long you wouldn't even begin to figure it out. You know how it is to calculate the GDP?

http://www.brazosport.cc.tx.us/~econ/arch/GDPcalc.html

"This approach sums the total expenditures by each sector of the economy: household Consumption, business firm Investment, Government purchases, and Net Exports which is eXports - iMports. The formula is GDP=C+I+G+(X-M)"

Not to mention you have to figure out consumption, business investment, government purchases and net exports. Which are all independent variables and are often not given to you. You must derive them from a set of information given to you, which is even more difficult. One mistake, and your whole calculation is wrong.

Now little fucktard, are you going to begin to say I am unable to be a math major? I certainly can do it, but it is not something I would enjoy doing. I'm smart enough to do, as are most people in the field of economics.

You don't know anything about capitalism as shown with this statement. The complexities and benefits of it. You don't know crap. You minimize other people and you act like an idiot.

Those are some beautiful pics rakedog! By the way, how do you put pics in posts, cause some people provide links and you can just insert em directly.

Yup, the pictures are real nice. But shrink them down! I hate huge pictures that expand the forum wide. I might be posting few pix of Chicago, Dallas, and NYC from when I went to vacation.

Heh, sorry, but my resolution is like 1600 X 1200, so they appear just fine to me.
