ECON 101

Yet another facebook meme I shared:

And here's what I wrote to accompany the share:
At this point in my life, I feel pretty safe saying that what most people think they know about economics is just plain wrong. I mean, even a lot of economists are just plain wrong, preaching platitudes out of Econ 101 textbooks which have no real world corollary. As usual, I shudder to think that I, a lowly restaurant server, understand this stuff better than the people who run the country, the people who pontificate for a living.

In many ways, this country's sick in the head.
