Sounds good, but I can't fact check you. At this point all I remember about economics is supply and demand.
Don't they also call it the dismal science. Hey, now what else might I remember? :LOL:
Yes, We are the specialists in the consequence of resource constraints; we are the folks that often repeat words to the effect of: "there is no free lunch". As a group, we freely admit to liking taxes (but have strong preferences on what types of taxes). We love to publicly argue with each other. Total fun at the party type material.....

We are typically far more fiscally conservative than the average voter. Our sense of humour is wry and cynical. Get economists together in the hallway or at a social gathering and the self-deprecating humour is such that you would think economists have serious self esteem issues. (Though if you enjoyed Monty Python, it could be amusing.) It all must sound weird to ordinary, well adjusted folks.

On a serious note, the USA benefits from many of the world's greatest economists. Brilliant. The whole world has benefited, thank you very much.

Good analysis has played a strong role in steadily improving the functioning of freemarket capitalism over the decades. We are now materially rich in ways that few could have imagined a century ago. We, especially those of us in the rich west, enjoy a quality of life that would have been impossible to fully imagine in the first half of the 20th century.

Many basic economic concepts can be useful to heads of households formulating budgets and making expenditure decisions. Something along the lines of: "here are the options, and here are the potential outcomes" and definitely not "thou shalt do this or do that".

If they do, I hope they bring something like the Kia Sonet over here to take its place. It kinda looks like the Seltos but smaller. It’s the size of the Hyundai Venue and better looking than it too.

(What is it with Kia and the letter S. Seltos, Soul, Sonet, Stonic, Sorento, Sedona, Sportage, Stinger, Sephia, Spectra 😵‍💫)

Frankly, Ford had its Fairlane, Falcon, Focus, Fusion sedans, and Escape, Edge, Explorer, Expedition SUV's (I've probably missed some in there...) so I think it's just a thang. And Toyota: Corona, Corolla, Camry, Cressida, and Crustacean. (what? :ROFLMAO:) Clearly Kia has been more loyal to its letter.

Why, where are you going? Are you dying?
Of course, aren't we all? Just not today!
I'm still upside down on my 2020 Soul, so I won't be doing anything, any time soon.
If gas keeps going up, I WILL have to cut down on my mileage, and spend more time at home,
watching TV and working on my 11 computers. Computers are my Hobby now, that I've retired from
the business. I firmly believe, that if I take really good care of my little Girl, she will last me for a long time to come. At 28k she uses NO oil, and performs admirably.
I was looking into putting a 3" Cat-Back exhaust system on my car, but an expert said that would only make it louder, not better, so I've put that idea aside for now. Louder would be OK, if that also improved performance, but that's not guaranteed. So for now, at least, she's my 100% Pure Stock, wildcat, Grocery Getter. lol And, neither Borla or Magnaflow makes an exhaust system for this car.:cry:

Happy Holidays, Y'all!
:cool:
