The Economics of Non-Financial Things

The lastest NPR Planet Money podcast is a great example of why I listen to Planet Money and Marketplace.

I’m not big in to economics, at least not in the traditional sense of the financial world and money and all that stuff, but the economic principles can apply to all sorts of other parts of our lives. The latest podcast is about South Carolina Governer Mark Sanford and is on the Economics of Cheating and Love. I think it’s facinating to look at other non-financial aspects of our lives in economic terms.
