What is is a we[b log] delivering economic views in a fresh, contemporary style. We’ll have fun with current events and try to learn something in the process. It’s economics with a twist.

Economics in Technicolor!

At, the designation of the dismal science will not stand! The way we see it, the more everyday people understand about the economic world they’re in, the better off we’ll all be. But rather then getting a monotone financial prospectus, we’ll dive into markets and economic principles with a style and panache previously dedicated to the lighter sides of life.

Laughter is the Best Policy

We’re not doctors here but science tells us there’s something to this laughter thing. Laughs release infection fighting antibodies, change body chemistry, and relieve distressing emotions that are linked to heart disease. We’ll provide the smiles and laughter as you enjoy your health nirvana – even if your insurance premiums rise. Next we can begin lobbying for that honorary doctorate.

What is Economics?

Economics is the allocation of scarce resources. Economics is not exclusively about money which opens the door to some of the fun we’ll have! Scarcity implies that the resources at our fingertips cannot satisfy all wants and needs so we must allocate them in the best way possible.
