John Maynard Keynes said that

economists are the rarest of birds…the master-economist must reach a high standard in several different directions and must combine talents not often found together. He must be a mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher – in some degree’.

Economics is an intriguing subject to study precisely because it enables you to analyse the world around you in ever greater detail. What causes interest rate fluctuations? How is government policy impacting upon equality in the labour market? How are businesses implementing the ‘green agenda’? These are some of the questions that a degree in economics enables you to grasp hold of.
