Whenever people start talking about economics, something in the air changes. For most of us, the air becomes filled with a little buzzing noise that interrupts our train of thought and makes it impossible to actually understand what those trained economic savants are saying. Eventually, the buzz transforms into a completely formed thought–usually something along the lines of, “What should I make for dinner tonight?” Or, “I’ve got to pick up the dog from the vet.”
It’s not long before we aren’t even catching pieces of economic relevance in the conversation happening before us and instead are simply nodding our heads and trying to stay awake.
Well folks, that ends now. Okay, actually it ends on Monday when we start our new series–Everyday Economics. In this series we’ll break apart complex financial and economic theories, terms and definitions and we’ll make them easily understood. We’ll even try to make the topics entertaining and show you the role they play in your everyday life.
Look for our posts in the new series Everyday Economics every Monday through Friday.
