We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Seriously. A friend highly recommended these to me. Good for kids, since the schools teach them nothing about economics. I think the schools assume that money and wealth come from heaven and/or the government.
Probably good for most adults too - and most journalists. Paul Krugman - take note.
Do these comics teach children that central planning of an economy by an intellectual elite does not work? The Fed is nothing but a central planner who manipulates prices in an attempt to steer the economy. I don't understand why many economically knowledgeable people cluck their tongues and make fun of the silly communists/socialists who are inclined to artificially set prices for politically sensitive goods/services like energy or healthcare, but don't realize that the Fed artificially manipulates the price of EVERYTHING with its monkeying with the money supply. It is wrong for the government to manipulate free market prices of everything, including money. Sadly, these comics just indoctrinate children with the idea that central planning of an economy through a central bank is a good thing.
Without following the link... this is how I picture them:
See little Jimmy: this is a dollar. If you ever run out, you can print a trillion more of them. Do you know what a trillion is?
Here is another alternative to consider: the Uncle Eric series of books from Bluestocking Press: http://www.bluestockingpress.com/ which preaches the evils of fiat currency and the virtues of British common law and the US Constitution to pre-teens and early teens.
