Mr. Kleinert's World of Econ


    Economics...should be understood as a way of thinking about the world—a way of thinking about it in terms of costs and benefits. Every decision has both an upside and a downside. I think that’s the characteristic that marks out economics from the other sciences: it is the science of choices. We should look at it more in terms of smaller decisions and the choices people make, rather than whether the government can deliver miracles in the economy at large.”  


    Matthew Bishop, Business Editor of The Economist and author of “Essential Economics”

    Continuous effort--not strength or intelligence--is the key to unlocking our potential.

    Winston Churchill


    The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.

    Henry David Thoreau

    (leave it to a literature icon to cut to the "essence of econ")


    Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.
    John F. Kennedy


    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

    -Michael Jordan
