  1. Economics is all to often understood as the study of various indicators that dubiously reflect amounts and flows of money rather than the study of the quality of life. According to many economists, if I get cancer from consuming Monsanto products and purchase medical care(goods and services), wigs, mastectomy bras, a casket, etc in response to the cancer, then I have benefited the economy. And the more people that share my experience, the better off we’ll be!

    • Absolutely correct. The more desperate you become, the more you spend, so according to conventional economics, the more desperate your situation, the better it is for the economy.
