Economics is a very confusing subject to me. As an engineer, my thought processes are rooted in logic. I see this trait in most of my colleagues too. i fail to understand how the money and shares markets work. How is it that a company does not have to make a profit but still see it’s shares skyrocket? How do you sell “futures”? Here is a video that demonstrates how crazy economics can be to the common person.

There is a lesson in that video you just saw. Sometimes because we are ignorant of the way things are, we are afraid to question the people who are running the show. When in fact they themselves have no idea what is going on.
