I was just owndering why their is no "economics" category. It seems to be a pretty hot issue. I have become quite concerned with people's misunderstanding economics. For example, many (I'm not quite sure if it is a majority, but I know its close) of the working poor are voting against their economic interest by voting Republican.

I must add that, to all you on the right who disagree with me on this subject, some great books to read on this subject are One Market Under God and What's the Matter with Kansas both by Thomas Frank.
