If you have followed this blog for more than a year, you probably know about the PNC Wealth Management 12 Days of Christmas Price Index. The index is based on the old Christmas carol wherein a true love showers the target of his or her affections with an assortment of presents – each corresponding to the 12 days of Christmas. I highlight it every year during the holiday season. I think it's a fun and interesting way to introduce economics and economic measurement.
As usual the folks at PNC have done a great job, providing explanations and teacher resources. My only concern this year is that those of you with slower systems or who lack certain computer capabilities in your classroom won't be able to enjoy it.
Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I suspect you will be surprised by many aspects of the index this year. I know I was.
