The capitol of our beloved state.
Are you listening fiscal cliff negotiators?
If you have a friend who is interested in both poetry and money (and who isn't?) and are looking for a good book to give them for Christmas, consider The Haiku Economist:
Haiku is a Japanese poetic form that presents ideas and images in a succinct 17 syllables. Can profound economic principles be presented in such a tiny package? This book answers with a resounding "Yes!"
Whether you're already familiar with free-market economics or the concepts are brand new to you, The Haiku Economist will entertain, inform, and delight you. Among the nuggets you will learn:
The economic experiment that saved the Pilgrims
What aerial bombardment and rent control have in common
Who encouraged the government to run huge deficits
What "creative destruction" is-and why it's a good thing
The surprising relationship between Wall Street and Washington…and much more!
Left and right, yin and yang, East and West all meet, in this charming and utterly unique volume. Enjoy!
