BLACK DISMALAPOD
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who thinks deep dark thoughts, very dark thoughts, thoughts that make the dead of a moonless night seem bright by comparison. Family and friends don't have a clue about what makes you tick. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time waiting for visits from door-to-door solicitors trying to buy either a T-shirt commemorating the first day of winter or software that won't crash your computer. Be on the lookout for bottles of barbeque sauce that act TOO innocent. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter B, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 952764. Your preferred shopping venue is convenience stores. Your special symbol is the pound sign (#).

You are seldom disappointed. You tend to spend a lot of time by yourself. Sadly, you recognize that you are destined to come up on the short end of any economic transaction.

Because the quantity of imports is restricted, the price of imports increases, which thus encourages domestic consumers to buy more domestic production. Import quotas are one of three common foreign trade policies designed to discourage imports and/or encourage exports. The other two are tariffs and export subsidies.

Taming Our Beastly FEDERAL DEFICIT

It's almost impossible to take a leisurely stroll around the economy without crashing headlong into the federal deficit. It doesn't take a microscope to see it bulging from the windows and doors of the Sylvester J. Peabody Federal Office Building as we pass by. It's a monstrous beast that seems to be growing by the minute. But is the federal deficit really as ghoulish and gruesome as drawn by political cartoonists? Should we make a detour of our pedestrian trek to avoid the beast? Considering it's size, is avoidance even possible. To answer these question, let's consider the pluses and minuses of our federal deficit.
