So, seriously, fuck off and grow up.
gstoddart, I'm your father.
Seriously, you don't know anything about economics. You are confusing economic policies with economics itself. Economics can lead to choices and can be used to support ideologies, but it isn't an ideology by itself. That's what you are not understanding. If you consider climatology and cosmology are sciences, economics is surely a science too.
In fact, even psychology is a science and sociology too.
Economics isn't an ideology. Are you retarded or just ignorant? You are telling us about Greenspan's policies. Policies aren't economics, they are policies, they are politics and they are ideologies. But economics isn't an ideology. And of course it is interwined with politics, it doesn't mean at all it is an ideology. What you are saying is like saying physics is just mathematics.
You are just refraining complains from social science people who do not understand anything about economics because it requires some knowledge of math. And again, it is like you are saying physics cannot be a science because there is many unproven theories that coexists. Frankly, you are an idiot.
Exactly! Stop the bullshit about the motivation of the driver or Uber or whoever. You want a ride or not? If yes, take it, pay the price and shut-up. If the price it too high, less people will make money. Everyone at the end of the day is at the same thing: have as much money as he/she can. The rest is pure bullshit and marketing. "We-want-to-help my ass!"
I don't know why you believe everyone should be able to split CSV files or things like that. Learning coding as a general education will not enable people to do such things. They will know they may be able to do it if they invest enough time to practice coding. The point is those people who are calling you have something else to do and have to excel at something else, they have no time to figure out how to do such things and they even don't have to do it often enough for them to worth learning it. So, they call a professional who they know will provide them with a solution in a breeze.
Back to the car analogy, I can certainly change myself the oil filter and the oil, but I will not. I prefer to pay the few bucks it costs me to ask someone else better equipped to do it and save the time I would put doing this a few times in a year.
