Promoting Economics

March 16, 2018

Did anyone see the news articles a couple of weeks ago about the Prime Minister’s comments on too many students studying Law? One example can be found on the ABC News web site (see http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-02-02/malcolm-turnbull-says-too-many-kids-do-law/9387508)

 

While directed at budding university students, Mr Turnbull’s remarks are relevant to secondary school students choosing subjects for next year. Although I’m guilty of a bit of selective quotation here, the PM actually said 'frankly, you would be better off doing economics'.

 

His point was that many students see Law as a background for many jobs, but would be better off in the long term with the ‘intellectual endowment’ that subjects such as economics provide.
