: I liked how you connected Mt. Holyoke students with some of the things we have been talking about in class. You wrote about how students here are examples of how economics affects our lives. The population of people at Mt. Holyoke act as examples of the other processes that are also “intertwined” with economics (political, cultural, environmental.) These are all things that shape us as people. As professor Gabriel was talking about in class – everyone is an individual and their existence affects everyone else. Therefore, the different environments that people come from, cultures that they are a part of, political and economic systems that they are familiar with, not only help to shape that person but also the people that they interact with. Through your own experience at Mt. Holyoke you can see that Professor Gabriel’s ontology of everyone being an individual with great impact on every other person seems to holds true.
