Economics is life                               
Carla Harrold                                                                                    March 21 -- 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Economics and the economy are topics for life, not just for the classroom. Every day, the decisions we make - and those made for us - have consequences. Every opportunity seized may also have a cost - that of another opportunity lost. Economics isn't about the stock market (that is finance), but it is about the making conscious daily decisions. We face constant choices about the best way to distribute our limited resources across our unlimited wants; which job should I take, where to live, do I go to college, what to buy or sell, how much to borrow to accomplish any of those. What about voting? Which decisions should government decide for us? There is power in choice, and there is even more power when we recognize our choices have "secondary effects" and opportunity costs.   --  Limited to 25.
