of and both? department
Economist Arnold Kling points out that while fewer students are enrolling in computer science specialization programs, the number focusing on the economy is exploding. It’s probably a rather cyclical trend – but Kling suggests it’s not necessarily a bad thing. His argument seems to be that you can acquire enough computer science at the same time, but learning about economics could prove to be much more useful – even in the tech industry. Of course, it leaves out the fact that you can also pick up a ton of savings alongside. I would say both skills are important and it’s hard to see one being much more important than the other. If you have a propensity to do one, then pursue it – but if you are truly proficient, why not learn both?
