    While I agree most business journalists need a better understanding of business, there are three points I would like to make on the topic.

    1. Why would a rational person with an econ. degree take a job in journalism when they can work elsewhere for much more money?

    2. Would someone who graduated with a 2.0 in econ. really do a better job than someone who graduated with a 4.0 in English and spent some time learning about basic economics?

    3. I find many people don’t set out in life to be business journalists (I didn’t), so it would be hard to increase training at the undergraduate level.
