Subject: Is Economics The best major?
I am in high school, and all my friends say economics is one of the best majors, just wondering is it. Is there a lot of jobs in Economics. Also, I am trying to get into Economics at Waterloo university, is waterloo university a good university and is it good for economics.

These are some of the notable economics major that my friends preach to me:

Stephen Harper-prime minister
Ted turner-Owner of CNN
Tiger Woods-best golfer
George Bush-President Usa
Ronald Regean-president Usa
Arnorld Sweergernigher-Governor California

They have a huge list with so many famous names, why do economics major become so famous. Anyone

I´ve been told that economics/math double major is very desirable.

However, engineering degrees are more flexible.

ye economics and math go well together...well if you do economics your gonna be doing a lot of math anyways
im no expert but economists have a broad sense of knowledge which they could put to use in various careers so i would think that there are many possibilities out there

BBA and BCom is just for job training degree, it´ll land you 40k jobs, and stay there forever if you don´t have anything special.

Economics develop your logics, while preparing you for the business world, you´ll learn lots of quantiative stuff (math) and liberal arts, which will ultimate put you higher in a coporate hierachy.
