I spent most of my time in high school economics pouring holes from the hole punch in Mrs. Weidman's air conditioning unit, then I'd casually complain about how hot the room was so she'd turn on the A/C, thus initiating a blizzard of holes flying out of the A/C, much to my amusement. I guess I am finally taking an interest in economics. It's probably because I'm old enough to really be aware of how it affects me and things like my 401k. I've started listening to NPR's Planet Money Podcast. Check it out, you might learn something.
