Thinking like a social worker

…any questions? Yes. I have plenty.

Monday Morning Share: Poverty and Privilege

on May 6, 2013
School Finance 101 Blog wrote a piece on The Perils of Economic Thinking, which brought me back to why I started this blog in the first place.  It is fun for me to look back a year ago when I started writing.  I thought that economics would have some answers into human behavior.  I am not so sure anymore, economists seem so far away from the lives of real people.  When I read articles, like the ones below on poverty and privilege, and when I talk with individuals wanting assistance, I can see that economists are a part of the problem.  Maybe that is the reason for continuing learning about economics, so that I can speak the language and have creditably with individuals making decisions that effect others lives.  With that being said, I know there are great theorists out there.  Anyone I should read up on?
