In Charles Eisenstein's essay, "Sacred Economics," from http://sacred-economics.com/sacred-economics-chapter-1-the-gift-world/, the author basically talks about economics at its in the best way possibly put, how can someone put a little bit of everything in a book about economics life, religion, history, purpose, questions that can be answered by reading this book.
I am concerned by some posts on Youth Voices, like Kelsey's "Jobs or the Environment?" because I am also wondering if my peers understand the economic implications of things like the pipeline. Does she understand how it would do good for the United States economy?
New Yorkers need to realize the ongoing inequality between each other. It’s getting worse with every day that passes by, and a vast majority of the public is still oblivious to this economic prejudice. A perfect example could be found below:
"New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed ban on super-sized sodas drew a tidal wave of national media attention late this past spring. An official city government report on New York's super-sized incomes issued the week before the soda move, by contrast, drew virtually no national attention at all."
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been economics. I remember Mr. Fitzgerald talking about it last year, but I wasn't able to fully comprehend it due to my excessive tardiness in the class. Lately, the issue has caught my eye again, and so I decided to read “Introduction to Economic Analysis” by R. Preston McAfee.

In, Scott Burn's opinion piece, "Just how much is a future year worth?," from the Austin American Statesmen, the author conveys the difference between spenders and savers and how your financial integrity and retirement can be affected by your actions today.
How do advertisments for cosmetics affect People? You can see advertisement in different places. Billboards, magazines, TV shows, commercials, etc. I did a research project a few months ago on the pros and cons of cosmetics, and I learned that both men and women buy things that they use daily or even things they feel they need just for the moment mainly because of the advertisements. But this month I've read some articles and watched some videos and they also helped me figure out how the advertisements affect the buyer and how convincing they are as well.
Why do I think the topic of cosmetics is so interesting? Well as a girl who doesn't wear makeup I still would like to know the do’s and don’ts. What's “in” or what are the pros and cons of buying and using these cosmetics. I used to think that all women had the same idea about makeup cosmetics, but over this month I've read four articles and watched one video on others' perspectives on cosmetics. They really helped me a lot and changed my mind on a lot of things.

I’ve been reading “Sacred Economics” by Charles Eisenstein for a couple of days and now I’ve finished reading the entire introduction. When I first began reading this book, I was immediately able to connect with the author. It was like we shared the same thoughts and opinions, although his are quite obviously more detailed and specific. The author starts off by letting the reader know the whole purpose of the book and that is to make the economy, but more importantly money, sacred. A sacred object is something that is held in high regards.
I suppose I should try to condense this topic into a more simple format. Since the average American seems to have no recollection of exactly what happened in 2008. A lot was fraud. However, lot of it was also just continual denial of the truth.
These two essays basically tell you about cosmetics in different ways. It tells you the different ways women benefit from cosmetics, but in there own different ways. The first one states how women of south africa became avon ladies. selling cosmetics help them make a living for themselves and their families. The second one shows what people rather in cosmetics. the kind of brands and the money they would spend. Both are very good articles and helped me with my project for school, and also for the future of buying or using cosmetics.
In the passage “Ninety-Nine Weeks: A Fairy Tale” http://blog.bookviewcafe.com/2011/11/21/ninety-nine-weeks-a-fairy-tale is mostly related to Occupy Wall Street in the ways of politics and protesters fight for what's right and unemployment issues. In the passage each character has a meaning to the fairy tale and how each represents a symbol as in what's going on today with Occupy Wall Street. I understand how they use ogres as the rich, fairies as in government help, foxes as protesters and the old man as a unemployed person.
