Debt Issues...Micro and Macro

I've been busy with my online courses and I hope to get busier. 

Nevertheless, here is a comic that, in my opinion, offers all kinds of possibilities as a discussion starter.
Arlo & Janis

The first and third panels carry the weight. 

The first panel can be related to expectations, the business cycle, and employment. (For those of you unfamiliar with the strip, Gene is the soon-to-graduate college age son of the couple you see.)

The third panel can be used to illustrate credit, debt & deficits, normative statements, business cycle, animal spirits, expectations, and behavioral economics.  And those just hit me in the first minute.  Do you see other possibilities?  If so, please share.
