I am delighted to make you smart about the U.S. economy. That way you can better understand the critical changes occurring now. I describe how these changes affect you and suggest how you can use this knowledge to enhance your well-being. Economics is the only game where you are on the field whether you like it or not. The only difference between the winners and losers is whether you know the rules of the game.
Thomas Jefferson said, "I think by far the most important bill in our whole code is that for the diffusion of knowledge among the people. No other sure foundation can be devised, for the preservation of freedom and happiness." August 13, 1786 in a letter to George Wythe. That is my purpose in writing this site.
