Wow, Brian. Articulate young people. Who were told that proper language skills are needed for business. Something you don't do with your Radio Rookies crew, in your search for "authentic" young minority youth. You do them a disservice by not helping them to express themselves properly.

So the reason to study math, economics is "to put a business plan together".

Anyone concerned that the US has embraced the dogma that the only reason to do anything is for purposes of business?

Study math, physics, economics - if and only if it's good for business. Poetry, painting, music -- not good for business -- dump 'em.

If you're looking for a cultural reason behind the financial disaster and the revolting obscenity of Lloyd Blankfein, etc., look to these people who think that things are only worth doing if they are good for business and mammon.
