A Clear-Cut Example of Choice....

that hits just below the wallet. Today's issue of The Washington Post has this story. The choice we make has implications that will clearly affect each of the end.

Reminds me of the days I taught consumer economics and told my students to consider generic brand over name brand.

Please share any reactions you get to the story.

Posted the Optimistic Economy on my facebook page which has turned into an economic news feed for mostly former students.
