Economics in college: it is nothing like AP economics. I have seen too many people not have fun in economics because they thought it were an extension of AP economics, or “something like in The Economist.”
Well, here’s just a quick note. If you don’t like math and stat (with some use of computational methods using computers), you’re gonna have a bad time. Understanding economics is more about understanding lagrangians than understanding how interest rates will affect the Chinese economy.
Just something to think about for those of you going to college/deciding whether you want to be an economics major.
