I confess that I don't. Economics was the one subject that flummoxed me in college. I took Econ 101 twice, dropped it once and finally squeaked by with a "C." I could never wrap my head 'round all that "supply and demand," "GDP" and "market" talk. But today, I realize that I can't afford not to "get it"--not with the country in crisis. It is incumbent that every citizen understand how we got here and how we can get out of this mess.
At 4 p.m. EDT, Sunday, March 22, on the next episode of "The Best of What Tami Said," we're talking economics--or namely economic crisis. I'll be joined by Pamela Kemp of Pam's Coffee Conversation, who has been studying the economy as a layperson for five years and covering the current turmoil on her blog, and Alan Silberberg, CEO of You2gov, a political social networking site that helps citizens to become more powerful, more informed, and more able to influence government decisions that affect them.
