Thought provoking

"The Uncertain Hour" is a great podcast that focuses at a very personal level on how macro economics affects real people. I subscribed after one episode. The podcast focuses on a simple observation, that "sometimes the things that what we fight the most about are the things we know the least about." This reminds me of the quote attributed to Mark Twain: "It ain't what you know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so." I believe Twain's wise words may have also been quoted in the movie "The Big Short."

Disappointing

What a great story. Until the end. When you came up with excuses why the great work that had been done was all bad. Of course more jobs are available when there are more jobs! And then to make comments that the work that the woman did was so difficult. And if she really wanted to be a nurse instead of work in a clothing shop, she surely could have pursued that at night. That is what my mother did. And I worked and went to school at night. Yep, life is difficult. I am in constant search of how we can make this world better, but in your search to bash success you made it a little worse.
