Honestly, probably not. Basic economics is fairly intuitive and is just putting formal education to a lot of stuff I, personally at least, find extremely intuitive. Then again, maybe there is something from micro or macro that I don't remember, but I don't think that's the case.
Mmm, ok. Might do something online or something as I have no econ background whatsoever (or business, etc. which could also be an issue).
Khan Academy has something on Macro and Micro; I was planning to check them out after seeing where my math skills might lack, so I can let you know then. IIRC, the finance section was kind of beyond a joke though.
Granted, the math section has taken forever, since it's required me to do really stupid shit. I guess I don't entirely understand how to operate the platform, but I received a basic arithmetic question followed immediately by some weird calculating volumes of shapes formed by curves using integrals.
Good to know. Econ seems math-y and I'm hoping ~5 semesters of math will sort of help alleviate my deficiencies in that area to anyone concerned, but it's obviously not the same at all.
