Have you took Economics?
August 18, 2011 7:14pm CST
One of my next classes is Economics. I am not really looking forward to it. I was wondering how many of you have took a economic class? My main question is do they talk about politics? Or is it just strictly economics? I realize that every class at different schools are going to be different. I just thought I should ask anyway, and see what people say.

Yes, I took my economics class as an elective for my Engineering course. I took up Engineering Economics to be specific. Well, from what I took, there are minimal politically inclined discussions. Mostly it tackles about technical computations and analysis. But of course, my teacher relates some topics to the current situation and latest events at that time, which makes it more interesting as you can see the application of it and its effect in real life. It is nice to learn such things. It can help you in the future in dealing out with financial management. Good luck on your class and always stay awake to learn more!

It is required that I take Economics in order to get my associates. Hopefully they won't talk about politics, but I am afraid that they will. I have to have discussions in all of my classes and I am scared that I will have to discuss politics or a economical issue that I don't understand with other students. I will just have to do my best and really study in this course. I actually have to take financial management when I eventually go for a masters, so maybe this class will help me more than I realize. I will have to really take notes and pay attention. I plan on taking a lot of financial classes also so it may be a good thing I have to take it.

Yep, just go with the flow of learning it. Politics may be part of economics because it affects it but it isn't all about it. To be honest, I am really interested with economics as I am into stock trading lately. Just try to learn as much as possible from the class. Every bit of knowledge from economics is a good thing because you can use it and apply it in real life.

I have taken introduction to macro/micro and intermediate macro/micro courses. My experience suggests there is not much political contents, just some basic concepts, fiscal policy, monetary policy, monopoly,oligopoly, supply=demand etc. I think Economic course would not cause you lots troubles.

Politics is not included in economic subject unless it has a close relation to a certain topic. At the most it will be dealing with the production, distribution, and consumption of good and services. It also includes includes topics about financial stuffs and those related to it. Personally, I find this subject boring when I was still in school.
