Me and Homo Economicus

I do not think that I am a classic Homo economicus. I certainly do have feelings for others, I enjoy giving gifts and receiving gifts. I love being apart of my community, active in clubs and bible studies. I do care what people think of me and I want to be seen as a noble upstanding person in society. I think that I seek a higher quality of life, which is why I’m at A&M, but I am not endlessly seeking commodities and pleasure. Like the example of the rats, just because something causes pleasure, it does not mean that it’s good for you. Greed is one of the seven deadly sins, which can be seen through the rat’s actions.
