So I just finished (poorly) my Econ 101 class at school, which means I assume I know more than everyone when it come to macro and micro economics. Duh! (There has to be a think called 101-syndrome…). Anyway, Marketplace has a good little piece on why the average American should not be too concerned about the trade deficit. Worth a quick listen.
Since it is the end of the year, you still have about one day left to donate to Marketplace. Tax deductible, etc.
