John Maynard Keynes once wrote, "The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else."
Living in a world that is constantly torn by economic problems, economic ideas can definitely shape and sway people's minds, and economic inquiries can be truly exciting and rewarding.
