Since MRUseems to want to have a focus on Economics, should MRU encourage some members to take their food and health questions elsewhere?
There is no safe space in Economics. If we disagree, we discuss. Sometimes quite passionately. And when we reach an impasse, we go get a beer and talk about mutual interests until closing time. If anyone studying Economics needs a Special Snowflake Zone where she or he can call his or her mommy, scrape up 60K and go to Harvard. For one year (room and board extra). I’m here to learn about Economics—at once a theoretical science and a philosophical art that’s trying to capture and describe humanity’s constant drive to survive. Economics is about making the best use of scant resources for the betterment of all. I know social justice is an important area for many people, but please, leave those distractions at the door. They’re a misallocation of resources. Cheers!
