“Hello! My name is Josh Osborne and I graduated from TAMU-CC with an economics minor in 2003.
I chose to become an economics minor after taking macroeconomics with Professor Crowley.
I was initially apprehensive about taking on such a task as I had a rather meager background in mathematics.
However, I quickly realized that the mathematical aspect was ancillary to the theory and (at least as a minor)
not extremely complex. Moreover, I learned that economics pervades every aspect of life and provides useful models
to explain it.
Upon leaving TAMU-CC, I worked in the private sector for two years before enrolling in law school at the University
of Texas at Austin. I cannot begin to explain how useful my economics background has been in my legal studies.
If you go to law school, some form of economic theory is taught in every class.
Both judges and legislators have begun to take economic incentives into account when deciding or making law,
and its influence will continue to grow in the near future.
After law school, I plan to work for Kelly, Hall, and Hartman in Fort Worth practicing Bankruptcy and Securities law.”
