Ocasio-Cortez and the Economics of ‘Free Shit’

The National Review writes about Democratic-Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, “Boston University’s Fake-o-Nomics Darling.”  They put it bluntly, “It costs a pretty penny to earn a diploma in stupid.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez majored in economics, but she doesn’t seem to have learned much.

The annual list price to attend Boston University — including tuition, fees, room, and board — currently rounds out to $70,000. To acquire a degree in economics from this tony institution of higher learning, an undergrad must complete courses in calculus, microeconomic and macroeconomic analysis, empirical economics, statistics, and assorted electives.

Four years, 52 credits and nearly $300,000 later, the school promises that BU economics majors will depart “with a firm understanding of core microeconomic and macroeconomic theory” and the “empirical skills that are essential to applying economic reasoning in our increasingly data-driven world.”
