In my AP Economics class we have to write a summary of a recent article every two weeks and explain how the 6 Core Economic Principles relate to the article. We also have to use a bunch of vocabulary terms like “opportunity cost” and “economize.” Last time I saw that everyone was doing articles on politics, international affairs, or technology like I did. This week I started my search off for an article with similar topics as before, but I wound up with something a little different.
I did my project on the return of Manolo Blahniks this week. I connected it with all of the principles and managed to get a Sex and the City reference in there too. I feel so accomplished and I know tomorrow the girl next to me will see my article and try to find one just like it next week. Meanwhile, I’ll be something even stranger to apply economic thought to.
