Legislatures and Education

by bhemenwa

Here is a link to the Chronicle of Higher Education's statistics on the education levels of State Legislatures.  Notice that over 50% of Illinois's Representatives have a Bachelor's degree or less.

Illegal Immigrants

by bhemenwa

In our recent discussions about Unemployment the topic of immigration has come up (and we will address this issue in much more depth later in the semester).  Here is a good clip illuminating why illegal workers really do not have an impact on the number of jobs being offered to citizens.  It also demonstrates how we are actually made worse off by not allowing them to work.

I have also embedded the clip Stephen refers to of his testimony to Congress.  Congress thought he was coming to speak to them, seriously, about the immigrant issue.  Why they thought he would a.) be serious and b.) have any actual insight into this issue is still somewhat of a mystery to me.  Note: the background laughing is from his audience as he aired this... it is not Congress laughing.

Macoeconomics Students: Assign 10.1 update

by bhemenwa

Macroeconomic Students:

We have not introduced the Aggregate Supply and Demand graph, which is needed to answer the second half of the first question.  We will be going over that during your next course meeting.  I will push back the due date on Assignment 10.1 by one class period to account for this. 

All the sections have covered enough information to answer the rest of Assignment 10.1, and all of Assignment 10.2; so you should still be able to get most of the work done over the weekend.
