Academic Decisions

I've recently realized that I would seriously consider going back to school and getting a PhD in economics after working as an engineer for a few years after I graduate. This came as somewhat of a surprise to me because in the past, I have been pretty set against going to engineering or computer science grad school. I don't think I would enjoy going to grad school and doing research for either engineering or computer science, but I had not even considered economics. I think economics is attractive to me because I already spend a pretty significant amount of time thinking about economics and politics, and because (I'm going to be pretty arrogant and a bit naive here) I really think I might have something to contribute.
