Supplying the career you demand
The earliest humans likely traded pelts and berries. Travelers heading west across the early plains bartered for wagon wheels and food. Across the centuries, we have produced, exchanged and consumed goods and services, whether or not we called that an economy.
We will continue to be economic beings and societies long into the future. When you analyze our world through this lens, you gain a certain set of skills. These practical, technical skills transfer into a variety of roles. Now, if you could do something about gas prices, that would be a bonus.
