That's absolutely laughable and not remotely true. My brother will be a freshman at Wharton next year, and possibly a finance major. He got an 'A' in accounting at Johns Hopkins as a junior in high school...

So you are saying that he got a A in one accounting class at a college known for its med school? Very impressive indeed.

It's known for more than that, but an 'A' in a class taught by one of the best professors in the country is no joke...

Funny you should say that because the job I'm likely to take in the Fall pays about as much as they'll be making ;). Hooray suburb schools!

That's very false. My father has a CPA and makes a ton of cash. Also, the kids leaving Mays Business school with an Accounting degree get awesome jobs.

Petroleum Engineering is where the big bucks are. We have the best school for that and my friend already got a job offer paying him like 90k.

Here are the things I'm interested in studying:

Political Science
Macro Economics
English
Creative Writing
Journalism
Communications
Philosophy
Public Relations

Next year, I'm going to UT (Tennessee). If they had a creative writing major, I might do that, but they only offer that as a minor. So, what's good to major in if I'm looking to go into Journalism or Public Relations as a career, and write fiction on the side? Any advice would be appreciated.

The world needs more economists who study economics from the complex system perspective instead of the static neo-classical method. It needs more of the latter like it needs a nuclear holocaust.

Philosophy and creative writing are pretty much worthless as a sole major. Journalism jobs are dwindling. Poli sci is a major where you should go to law school after. Econ, PR and comm are all fine majors.

In the long run? A teacher ain't going to make squat compared to someone who is good with finance. I also am likely going to be a teacher.

The world needs more historians. The Da Vinci code has become accepted as factual. AH that makes my head want to explode!!!

Put me in a room with Dan Brown literature and the history channel, I'll kill myself. I can't even imagine what it's like being educated like BF51. Everything must appear false.

Then again I loathe Bernanke, geithner, greenspan and almost all mainstream economists because of their dogmatic adherence to courses of action who's negative ramifications should be blatant so Krugman's probably one of my least hated mainstream economists despite my absolute disgust with keynesianism/neo-keynesianism.

Put me in a room with Dan Brown literature and the history channel, I'll kill myself. I can't even imagine what it's like being educated like BF51. Everything must appear false.
My issue with historians is the statist/interventionist bias that's just permits most of the what I've read, be it text books or articles, that bias there and strong. Not to turn this into a political discussion but FDR and Lincoln are great examples of people who are almost canonized in much of what I've read yet personally I find severe fault in the actions of both that is utterly ignored all too often.

You need to look harder for more unbiased stuff. It's out there.
