    Great paper, really enjoyed reading it. If you haven’t, you should read “The Simpsons and Philosophy”… it is a great book and might establish a link between behavioral economics and philosophy?

    With the economy still in the tank for 65 percent of the
    population (or more), many have lost faith in the banking
    system. You will feel delighted to know that websites cater free
    of cost, round the clock. All these points prove that they are quite established and can always be trusted as
    worthy Hard Money (Tania)

    You don’t EVEN know how much easier, kinder and ‘more efficient’ you’ve made my on-going research and ‘re-upping’ my knowledge in Social and Behavioral Econ. (Micro-Macro and McDonalds’ ohhh) [auhg]

    I’m so pleased and happy for all your success! You look Amazingly( haught) @ the Ted Talks) ..u should see my cousin Zane on his… w. mustard or w. out?!?

    I’m part of Omicron Delta Epsilon….so it also take Me a LONG time to read one Econ. book -Try sailing AND Drinking or Drinking AND Beach…but NOT All w. Econ books…I’ve tried on the Train to S.D. and Oceanside, and even in Hawaii…. Yes, Jodi- it takes For-ever~

    All my best,

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody
    else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know
    if this is happening to them too? This might be
    a issue with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Kudos
