Inflation Simplified — Jamaican Style.

by Anura Guruge

YouTube Video below.

It is cute. Just 30-seconds.

What is REMARKABLE is that it was made by the “Jamaica Central Bank” (JCB) — their Government Agency responsible for their monetary policy. Their equivalent of the U.S. ‘Fed’.


I heard about this video on NPR’s ‘MarketPlace’. It intrigued I. I had to go find it. Then, I would have been remiss IF I didn’t share it with you.

Enjoy. Concentrate. You could learn a thing or two about inflation.

I also share this with YOU (especially for those that have never heard “Christmas at King’s” before.

To I, having had the pleasure & honor of growing up in Britain, “Christmas at King’s” epitomized Christmas.

I was lucky to hear for of the 2019 Festival, on NPR, this morning, during my walk. Made my day.

So, I share with you, with great pleasure.

‘Navajo’ To Their Credit (But Also Cost) Moving From Coal To Solar Energy.

This is a painful and initially very-costly strategic decision by the Navajo. They have relied heavily on revenues from coal but it has also taken a toll on their health — and, alas, they are no longer the hearty and healthy folks they once were.

Navajo land is PRIME for solar farms. They have such huge tracts of SUN-BACKED open space, unused with no habitation for miles. So, this is good. I am glad and proud. I want the best for the Navajo. Such wonderful people (in general).

Not sure how they will cope with the transition. They really do need money. Poverty is widespread.

Law School Attendance In The US Down, Way Down!

by Anura Guruge

Click to read very informative ‘NPR’ piece.

Click to access another related article, this one in ‘marketplace.org’.

I happened to hear this on NPR (as in first image) yesterday and had to do a double-take. They are even talking of law schools closing down.


Law school enrollment & attendance really is down. Half of what it was a decade ago?

Who would have thought? Who would have credited? If anything you would think that more ‘kids’ wanted to be lawyers when they see all these rich & famous lawyers on TV.

Yes, it is not cheap becoming a lawyer. That is supposedly a factor. But, there is also the rewards.

I am surprised. I guess all the jokes about lawyers have finally come home to roost.

A U.S. with not as many lawyers. Wow. What is that going to be like. I can predict one thing. Their rates will go up even further. That, obviously, will cause the tide to reverse.

I will have to keep an eye on this. See who I know is planning to become a lawyer.
