It’s amazing what a major fiscal crisis can do to you. I’ve basically have no interest in economics. In fact I even managed to weasel myself out of the required economics course in High School by taking a special course in Japanese taught by a college professor (that worked out well as I know something like five words in Japanese).
I find it surprising that quite accidentally I find myself reading and listening to economics news pretty much on a daily basis. Here’s what I’m checking out:
