And religion causes most of the problems, war, and economics of course, and study your history or you're going to repeat it; and if you're burning a Harry Potter book you need some serious counseling, you don't get it, you're missing the whole point.
Our trust in the future has lost its innocence. We know now that anything can happen from one minute to the next. Politics, religion, economics, and the institutions of family and community all have become abruptly unsure.
'Economics for Everybody' begins with understanding God's principles for organizing His creation and what that means for us as creatures and stewards.
R. C. Sproul
Economics is a subject that does not greatly respect one's wishes.
Many individuals are doing what they can. But real success can only come if there is a change in our societies and in our economics and in our politics.
My background educationally is physics and economics, and I grew up in sort of an engineering environment - my father is an electromechanical engineer. And so there were lots of engineery things around me.
First of all, just because the Tea Party people appear to be generally uneducated, ignorant about the political process, ignorant about economics, confused about their own platform from the beginning, and indelicate when it comes to the craft of diplomacy, doesn't mean they're wrong.
Steven Van Zandt
I saw that publishing all over the world was deeply constrained by self-censorship, economics and political censorship, while the military-industrial complex was growing at a tremendous rate, and the amount of information that it was collecting about all of us vastly exceeded the public imagination.
Survival, in the cool economics of biology, means simply the persistence of one's own genes in the generations to follow.
I found this out over the years, that racism is a thinly veiled disguise over economics and money. It really is.
Economics has never been a science - and it is even less now than a few years ago.
The economics of the security world are all horribly, horribly nasty and are largely based on fear, intimidation and blackmail.
If, in our haste to 'progress,' the economics of ecology are disregarded by citizens and policy makers alike, the result will be an ugly America. We cannot afford an America where expedience tramples upon esthetics and development decisions are made with an eye only on the present.
Economics is about creating win-win situations. But in sports, someone loses.
Debates go on to this day about what caused the Great Depression. Economics is not very good at explaining swings in economic activity.
The secret to the movie business, or any business, is to get a good education in a subject besides film - whether it's history, psychology, economics, or architecture - so you have something to make a movie about. All the skill in the world isn't going to help you unless you have something to say.
It seems to me that socialists today can preserve their position in academic economics merely by the pretense that the differences are entirely moral questions about which science cannot decide.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I think we're miserable partly because we have only one god, and that's economics.
I'm the result of upbringing, class, race, gender, social prejudices, and economics. So I'm a victim again. A result.
The breakdown of the black community, in order to maintain slavery, began with the breakdown of the black family.

But I tore ligaments in both knees, so I started studying business administration and economics and became a financial analyst, and I worked at a brokerage firm as a stockbroker.

As the Commonwealth Fund, the London School of Economics and the Nuffield Foundation have all shown, health reforms as well as additional investment were essential to improved outcomes, especially for poorer patients.
I founded Atari in my garage in Santa Clara while at Stanford. When I was in school, I took a lot of business classes. I was really fascinated by economics. You end up having to be a marketeer, finance maven and a little bit of a technologist in order to get a business going.
John F. Kennedy
