Are we all economists to a certain extent?
In one way or another we are all economists in the popular sense.(sic) We face changing prices daily. Economics matters to us, we hold our view(value) because our ethics, our ethnicity, and our educational background are built-in factors apropos of our economic views. Facts ask for explanations and explanations ask for more facts ad infinitum. That is the nature of ever- changing economics. Empirical findings from all subjects such as the following fields related to economics: anthropology,demography,ecology,geography,political science,sociology and economics per se. The lens through which we shall study the social world is that of economics. It is a compound-complex discipline that lifelong studies would still be unfinished pursuit. I started to study economics in early 1940s and I still declare unequivocally that I am always a student in the field of economics with all modesty. Xie Shihao aka Francis Shieh. Nov. 21, 2007
