If you ever decide to take an introductory course in economics at this or another university, one of the first things you will learn is the difference between two basic frameworks of economic analysis. The first, called positive economics, aims to describe the world as it is. This may mean calculating the effect of a particular policy on economic growth, poverty or the federal budget deficit.
Everyone has their own philosophy in life, even if they do not realize it. Many people have premises to support whatever it is they believe, whether it be why their favorite soccer team is the best or why they believe aliens exist. Now, I am not saying that every student should be studying philosophy, but I believe that every student should take advantage of the ideas that philosophers have to provide, right here at Rutgers. Throughout this article, I will provide you reasons as to why students at Rutgers should take at least a few philosophy classes and what benefits philosophy has in their lives.

The status quo is an apparent quid pro quo of donations for power. We have branded those who have accumulated wealth through the financial sector as ordained leaders that can be placed, regardless of context or institutional mission, in any position of any industry and produce success.

"Many things come to mind when people hear the word “lottery” — high stakes, high rewards, equal opportunity and no chance. “No chance” means the rare occasion that anybody actually hits the jackpot, even though the mathematical probability checks out. It is an assumption that pervades beyond the scope of the lottery business, either because everyone does it or nobody wins it. It is a societal self-fulfilling prophecy of pluralistic ignorance.
As we enter the new semester, I would not be alone in suggesting that the social climate at Rutgers during the current academic year has been, at best, lackluster thus far. I want to preface my future thoughts and claims by identifying myself fully. I am an African-American, School of Arts and Sciences junior. I am heavily involved at Rutgers, and my social circle is largely comprised of other Black students pursuing STEM fields. Those in this circle tend to be, at minimum, juniors as well. From my lens, and the lens of most of whom I associate, Rutgers has undergone a sharp decline in its social climate, especially as it pertains to partying.
