The reason I haven't posted anything here is because I'm basically uninterested in the politics of other countries. Sometimes I pay attention to the US primaries and stuff, but not so much anymore. I find Canadian politics interesting enough. Although there's lots of people who figure that the States is so important to Canada that we should listen to them, or that we live in a global village, so we should pay attention to everywhere. I understand that view, I just don't practice it.

This actually relates to something I was going to ask you.

If you go to school for economics, you'd focus on micro then rather than macro?

In your first semester everyone takes the same thing. A Macro, a Micro, econometrics... You get to pick electives in second semester. Micro appeals to me more. It's more obscure, so I won't be expected to know things at social gatherings, and I find it more interesting. But I could go internation econ, finance, etc. No decisions have been made. I also have to decide on co op.

I didn't say that Canadian polictics happen in a vacuum.
