I think at this time in our country it is very important for us all to understand how the economy works. We’re always hearing how the economy is bad, but how many of us truly understand what that means, and how we can make it better? Kersten helped me see the theory of economics in my daily life. I remember taking economics in college, and having everyone tell me good luck; as if economics was the class of everyone dreaded taking, but had to, because they didn’t understand it. I went in to that class worried it would be tough. It turned out to be one of my more enjoyable classes, because I actually understood it. Sadly, after that class I didn’t continue to pursue learning about economics. I was really glad to be able to read Ec-o-nom-ics.
I really enjoyed the last chapter “Why Does Comparing 3 Goods Change Perspective?”. Just after reading this chapter, Mark and I drove down to find a house near his new job (yay, he got a job!). While Mark was in the area interviewing, he found a house he fell in love with. So of course I had to check it out, and I wanted some perspective with other homes in the area. We got a realtor to show us some homes within our parameters. We saw 2 that “fit us”. After this realtor took us around (who by the way looked and sounded just like Don Knots!!), Mark took me out to the home he had found. It was a sold by owner home. Here is a little set up I did, with comparisons similar to what Kersten shows in her book.
|House 1||House 2||House 3|
|sq feet||4000 +||2000+||2000+|
|Parking||On Street||1 car garage||3 car garage|
