Is economics ********? So my friend was telling me about economics and he told me it was alot of BS. I remembered taking a economics course in highschool and to be honest, the teacher didn't really seem sure as well. He said that economics can go either way. There's no right answer but all people can do is predict. He said economists predict alot but they all have different predictions. I don't have much say on this topic because i don't have the qualifications to say anything. Can anybody tell me if it is BS?
