According to Lisa Wade, a professor at Occidental College in Los Angeles, if you have an understandings of Economics, you are likely a bad person.
That was her finding in an article she published this week, titled "ARE ECONOMICS MAJORS ANTI-SOCIAL?" The first word in the piece was simply, "Yep."
Dr. Wade writes that if you have taken classes on Economics, you "are less likely to share, less generous to the needy, and more likely to cheat, lie, and steal."
She largely bases her belief on a study from 2010. In the study, students were asked if they would like to contribute money to a liberal political group or a group that is pushing for lower tuition, possibly by asking for more subsidies from taxpayers.
Students with an understanding of economics were less inclined to donate to these groups than students with other majors. And for that reason, Dr. Wade has declared that they are anti-social.
...Further, she says that Econ majors need to take balancing classes, ones that present a different kind of economics.

What’s the other term for prairie pancakes?
Now if she had said anti-socialist I might agree.
These ‘professors’, along with activist judges, should be publically shamed for their idiotic ways.
They should pay a higher price than your garden variety lefty because they harm so many.
So then, can we say that people who major in sociology, women’s studies, black studies, or other liberal arts areas, are superior due to that? What are we really saying?
Ignorance is bliss... the educators want our children to be bliss.
I guess she means the economics practiced by Venezuela.
Dr. Wade, if you are a liberal, you are less likely to share your own money, less generous to the needy if it costs you anything, and more likely to cheat, lie, and steal and with a 99% probability that you are stupid.
So...if you want to get an `A’ in her course, show up in class with your copies of Das Kapital and Quotations from Chairman Mao.
Explain to her that “Your course is necessary to understanding capitalist exploitation of downtrodden proletariat, Comrade Professor”.
She has degrees in sociology and human sexuality.
I expect she'll be running for congress soon.
Seems like that's a value judgement. I prefer people who think like this.
She looks like she’s pushing maximum density in that photo and is probably one cheeseburger away from becoming obese.
Well that’s Obama all over, ain’t it professor?
“the economy is not a car, there’s no engine to stall,
no Expert can fix it, there’s no IT at ALL..
the economy is US we don’t need a mechanic
put away the wrenches, the economy is organic”
“The economy is not a class you can master in college
to think otherwise, is the pretense of knowledge”
There are several schools of economic thought...I would assume an Econ class would cover the major ones at least all of the Classical economic theories...
I wonder what "a different kind of economics" would be...
Maybe Islamic economic theories, Marxian economics, feminist economics...?
That’s one of my favorite videos...
I’m trying to read “Human Action” now. As Austrian economics is the only economics worth studying, I guess I am a really really really bad person according to her/it.
No, sweetheart, that would be progressive polidiots.
