Just for the record, Todd Akin, the Republican candidate for senate in Missouri of "legitimate rape" fame is an engineer. I'm just sayin`...
BTW, economics is a "social science," i.e., not real science. Everything there is to know about how the real economy works is taught in the first 2 semesters. Everything after that just teaches you how to f*** it up.

@Thonious: I wonder how many people recall that economics is a science, not a cult. Economics is the *science* of telling you tomorrow why what you did yesterday didn't work today.
That being said I at least applaud economics majors for going into politics, because that skill set is at least relevant to big decisions that person would make.
