One should always pursue that of own passion. In other words, your choices are the correct choices for you, as you know yourself best.
I know you will be engaged in this forum and topics related, as I came here by following the path you are looking to pursue.
I have studied economics, major focus on marketing and internationalizing. After writing a report on the introduction of the ECU, predecessor of the EURO, I had to dig deep into the core of the monetary system. Here I found a fundamental system error, and soon many other system errors became obvious. By following these errors to their roots and discovering origin of system itself, I found myself in reality studying religion.
Here are some elements that you perhaps find interesting.
- Hierarchy as word and concept originates from "priestly ruling class".
- Profit comes from equal loss. In a closed environment ( earth as one example ), no value can be added exceeding resource+energy any product or item consists on. In other words, if someone does a good sale it is equaled by a bad buy.
A system where profit exist, can only sustain as long as loss is possible. If we convert work/labor and resource both to energy, it is easy to see that work = 1 energy unit + resource = 1 energy unit become product = 2 energy unit. If sale of the 2 energy units consistently is sold for 3 energy units, the closed environment requires introduction of additional energy units to balance and prevent system collapse. Requirement is then steady population growth to introduce energy units through labor, or resources magically appearing from other places.
- Agriculture represents birth of profit. The attempt to extract more than put in. Today society use energy of 5kcal ( Oil, coal, nuclear, solar, labor energy added ) to produce 1kcal, whereas nature itself use 1kcal to produce 1kcal.
( My second example came of pretty bad, but perhaps you understand my mindless rambling
Anyway. Best of luck with whatever you must pursue.
