Re: Econogirl Comic Strip

"I assume comic 7 is http://econogirl.com/cartoon007.html" Okay, thanks, I do want to go back and clean up the confusing parts. I appreciate you're taking the time to point them out. And now I understand which comic we're talking about when you say Cartoon 7. The news report was true and t...

Re: Econogirl Comic Strip

This is especially true of cartoon 7. I'm not sure if this is because I'm misinterpreting the character or message, but it seems antithetical to the comic's point. Hmm, is comic 7 the one with the "actual news report", if I'm counting right? Or the one after? I am a professional economist...

Re: Citizen's Wage

I'm not sure I agree that a CW implies printing of more money. It's a reallocation of money, because it's funded by taxes. I'm not an econ guy though, so feel free to explain why that is incorrect. You're right. It's an income transfer and would simply replace the myriad we already have. CW is anot...

Re: Econogirl Comic Strip

You aren't really presenting... another side to this. Showing corporate guys as balding and middle aged was just for fun. I didn't mean to offend any good looking corporate guys. But when I present good guys, I might draw them differently. Steak and Potato man is also balding and he is Niki's good ...

Re: Econogirl Comic Strip

Remembers seeing items like that. Did not appreciate economy-based humor for similar reasons. Thanks, Deva, I fixed the bug. I think the most recent comics might not have been visible due to the bug. Could you explain what items you've seen like that? I didn't quite understand. Thanks for looking a...

Econogirl Comic Strip

I am just starting out with a comic strip and would like your feedback. Econogirl is a comic strip about a single mom, Niki, and her alter ego, Econogirl, an economic superhero who tries to help. Her website is http://www.econogirl.com Many of the strips depend upon each other, but here's an example...

Re: General Economics Stuff

The term "market failure" encompasses several problems which may undermine standard economic assumptions.....Information asymmetries and incomplete markets....Natural monopoly....Public goods.... One might go further in describing "market failure" or rather, renaming the phenome...

Re: General Economics Stuff

So, there's a subtle thread of incentive to be optimistic...So, most folks bias towards the side of positive predictions. Yes, that's about as friendly a spin as we can put on it. On a normal, cynical day, ha, I might say that the political nature of economic theory is more criminal than that -- pe...

I agree you have some good ideas. Maybe the "totally didn't work on this" look will catch on! Then you'll be The Master. LOL

Good Luck.

Re: American school system

That was a funny mistake, thanks for the correction. If income distribution trends continue the way they have been, we may yet call them "magnate" schools, ha ha. I haven't experienced the lottery system, but I would bet that it is going to become increasingly popular as population rises r...

Re: General Economics Stuff

Economics is kind of interesting in that it's both intensely math-based and also contains large elements of uncertainty, even over which models to use, sometimes. Now, the basics, supply, demand, price curves, etc...those are pretty widely accepted by all branches of economics. However, as you get ...

Re: General Economics Stuff

Personally, my economic theory most closely resembles classical economics, though it's influenced by neoclassical and Austrian economics as well. I'm curious as to what economic philosophies ya'll study/use I studied a program of heterodox economics myself, the philosophy being that a) the mainstre...

Re: American school system

I agree that it is difficult to talk about an "American system" because schools are organized here on a local level. There are many school districts and private secondary schools that offer specialties, however. Many cities have "magnet" schools for junior high and high school. T...

"Most of the pieces have some kind of mathematics background"

Nice paintings. Do you have commentary on the mathematics of each painting somewhere? I'm looking for real world math applications outside of science to share with math classes. Thanks!

Re: Completely Unbearable Comics

So, I see it's been awhile since you asked for feedback. I searched Unbearable comic to see if you're out there somewhere, but I can't tell if this and those are related at first blush. There is an Unbearable comic, but I assume that's not you. I mean this in a friendly way, are you serious about yo...
