The AmosWEB Free Lunch Index is designed to track the state of the economy based on the neverending pursuit of a "free lunch." While there is, of course, no such thing as a "free lunch," what with limited resources and unlimited wants and needs, that doesn't keep us from trying. A higher Free Lunch Index means a better economy. The Free Lunch Index can range from 0 to 800.

Help us compile the Free Lunch Index by providing your lunching activities each day. You have a choice from among nine alternatives:

  • Skipped lunch altogether.
  • Bought by another.
  • Ate lunch at home.
  • Brought lunch from home.
  • Fast food drive through.
  • Fast food dine in.
  • All-you-can eat buffet.
  • Casual dining with tip.
  • Fancy upscale with tip.
Your choice will be combined with other AmosWEB patrons to compile the index. Submit your choice daily. Check back often.
SCREENING

When confronted by asymmetric information, the use of small bits of information, or indicators, that suggest more comprehensive information. Screening occurs when those with limited information try to identify indicators suggesting more complete information. It is used in markets with adverse selection and moral hazard, especially in labor markets and in the provision of insurance. Common methods of screening include aptitude tests, affiliations, past behavior, and personal characteristics. A related method is signalling.

A Careful View Of WORKER SAFETY

It was THE most exciting baseball game in the long rivalry between the Shady Valley Primadonnas and the Oak Town Sludge Puppies. Two out, two on, the bottom of the ninth, the home team down by a run, and Harold "Hair Doo" Dueterman -- the Primadonnas' star center fielder -- up to bat. What excitement. What drama. Unfortunately Hair Doo hit the ball directly at the Primadonnas' runner on first. A line shot to the head. The runner was out. He was also unconscious. Game over. That was not the end to the excitement, though. Chucky Calhoun, the peanut vendor, was inadvertently decked by an enthusiastic fan and suffered a number of injuries as he tumbled down some concrete steps. Chucky, who has made repeated complaints to the Primadonnas owner (D. J. Goodluck) about unsafe working conditions, has filed a workers' compensation claim. What a mess. Too bad Hair Doo just didn't strike out like he usually does.
