I started studying economics and I'm finding it somehow stranger and more difficult than other academic fields I've studied. I'm having health problems but it just seems that the causes of economic events seem to be in the realm of opinion instead of science. maybe I just don't know enough about classical economic theory and how phenomena are explained?
did anyone else have the same experience?
wasn't Keynesian economics replaced by the Chicago school? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_school_(economics)
I've never done an economics course but I suspect it is more of a social science because it's hijacked and changed by politicians who decide what do based on what will get them re-elected?
