My wife was helping our oldest son select classes for High School. As the process was taking its natural course (teenager becomes less engaged). She asked if he wanted to take economics.
I recommended it.
Then I remarked that I’d never taken an economics class.
The wife didn’t believe me.
You see, I’d helped her through her macro and micro economics coursework when she had questions and my answers were spot-on with the text books and research she did for the class. Totally makes sense that she would have that impression.
But it was wrong.
So I pulled up my transcript and sure enough. No economics classes.
Years of listening to Freakanomics podcasts and reading Freedman, Hayek, Sowell, and Reason.com for fun have paid off.
My wife finally told me I was right about something.
