    I think going into medicine to become rich is a bad idea

    if you do Economics and go into IB, you can get mad pussy compared to doctors

    What even is this question?*

    Do you want to be a doctor? Or do you want to study Economics and apply to whichever grad scheme you find the most interesting? Or I don't know, do further study to become an actual economist?*

    Yeh, but it's not like Econ is anymore of a ticket to IB than pretty much any other respectable degree out there + it's not guaranteed OP will even get a job in IB, unlike medicine.

    There are many ways to make money other than banking.

    Depends which country or city you want to go to after graduating.
    No one can give you a definite answer. I would say Medicine would be more of a safe way to make lots of money (any country you go you will get paid a lot). Economics depends on the country or even the city you live in after graduating.

    But I do not know which one has the higher maximum potential, no one knows.
