Economics: An open letter to the masters of the english language 2

Dear Overlords,

Countries have economies.  (Ee-KON-oh-meez)

Someone who studies them is an economist. (ih-KON-oh-mist)

And the discipline they study is economics. (eh-ko-NOM-ix)

And their freshman schedules included “Econ 101.”  (EE-kon)

By contrast, I was a writing major. (RI-ting)

Which makes me a writer. (RI-ter)

And my works are my writings. (RI-tings)

We talk about the economy too much for their pronunciation to stay so stupid.  Please address this at your earliest convenience.

Your Obedient &c,
