Ect... You know where I'm going
I have seen many interview questions from banks such as Manulife and BMO. These questions are directly related to mathematics, and not on economics. Studying mathematics can enhance logic. Newton"s method in engineering, mole ratios in chemistry, and binary code in computer science" almost the entire modern world is built upon mathematics, and the fundamental concepts of algebra. Starting a business itself is related to risk analysis, risk analysis to statistics, and statistics to calculus.
Jobs in America are already skewed. There are too many lawyers, and not enough engineers. We need more movers and shakers like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, instead of more lawyers, who for the sake of protectionism, make the law and tax system more complicated, and hamper innovation at every turn. These people did not learn business in university; rather they learned from their experiences and found their ways through life.
We do need school to teach us these basic concepts. Let them teach us other things that are useful, such as calculus and algebra.
