DISMAL SCIENCE: A term for the study of economics developed during the late 18th and early 19th century when economists concluded that continued population growth would push wages and living standards to a minimal subsistence level and keep them there. It persists to the present time because economics continue to point out that actions result in opportunity cost, that nothing is free, and that eventually society has to pay the price for what it does.

PINK FADFLY
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who is on the cutting edge of what's new and innovative, if its trendy, then you are there. Family and friends able to set their calendars and clocks by the fashions that you wear. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time calling an endless list of 800 numbers looking to buy either a pair of leather sandals that won't cause blisters or clothing for your kitty cats. Be on the lookout for pencil sharpeners with an attitude. 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 630243. Your preferred shopping venue is high-end specialty stores. Your special symbol is the forward slash (/).


Is this You?

As a Pink Fadfly, you flutter from store to store, from product to product, looking for the latest fashions. You are the trend-setter and at the forefront of all fads. If it's new, if it's trendy, if it's on the cutting edge, you are there. Price is not important. Quality is not a prime consideration. For you it's not a matter of form over function or style over substance. The latest trend trumps all.


This isn't me! What am I?

Stealing A Few Moments For CRIME

Like most consumers, workers, and taxpayers, I engage in market exchanges for a lot of stuff -- food, labor, shelter, entertainment, confectionery products. But as I wandered through the peaceful community of Shady Valley, U. S. of A., I entered a "market" that I would have rather avoided. That's right, as the title indicates, I exchange some crime. I was mugged -- relieved of several valuable possessions -- right in front of the Shady Valley police station. I did the selling and my mugger did the "buying." While my part in the exchange was involuntary, the mugger's part was quite voluntary. In fact, the perpetrator of this crime acted much like any consumer headed to Natural Ned's Nursery and Garden Center in search of a creeping juniper. Let's see why?
