Economics

WHY IT IS ESSENTIAL TO UNDERSTAND ECONOMICS

Economics affects us all; as consumers, workers, producers, investors, and citizens we experience the impact of economics in our daily lives.  For this reason, it is imperative that we understand the basics.

Economic literacy is an essential component of an informed electorate.  We must understand the threat to our freedom that comes with government interference in the economy.

Free markets and free people go hand in hand. 

“There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.”

~  Robert Heinlen
