Time is money and money is time. Every second is an investment and every relationship, a deal. In this green world of notes where we can place a price tag on everything, what is the true value of human bonds? In the Economics of Humanity, we explore if humans have become so calculative that we now calculate the worth of our human ties, deciding who is "worth" investing in and who isn't.

Soham is a science student with Economics. Between Physics, playing the guitar, and taking part in the odd play or two, he often finds himself reading anything related to Economics (and sleeping). As someone who's been called mercurial, he has always thought about what drives people to behave the way they do. While others say this is judgemental, he prefers the term analytical.
