Economics again, and always. One of the key challenges in the public speaking events is finding an analytical framework on which to build our arguments.

A different sort of framework, but also of immediate and personal importance to those of you that we adults will be dumping into the real world in the not-too-distant future. This is the reality we’re leaving to you.
Compare and contrast again: To what extent does the first article explain the reality/problems the second article describes?
Update: What do these articles have to do with the first one in this post?
