Anyone ever looked in to pure economics, sociology, and social-psychology studies to find a way around social regulations that make up the 'norms' of society?
I studied pure economics for some years, a little sociology, and about a year of social-psychology. I basically came away with the understanding that the smartest people in these fields decide on probability statistics and hope they are right.. Basically
I was also in to mathematics and game theory a while. I was getting in to differential equations and algebraic topology before I got burned out..
After all that my best advice is still buy-low and sale-high, and conform.. Hope you're not 'unattractive' which is like a negative multiplier on the likely failure of social interactions.. Rags to riches is buy-low-sale-high and becomes easier as investment grows because profit moves with investment..
