I simply don know how half of America could vote for Obama in the face of his obvious failure to lead or follow through with his promises without causing devestating issues of his own (ahem, more debt for one). I find it interesting how Obama negative campaign (because he had nothing good to run on) and smear campaign aimed at destroying Romney character was so successful obviously many democrats did not bother to research if what Obama was saying was true. And as a woman, I found my biggest concerns to be addressed best by Romney I was not about to let Obama scare me into voting for him when his actions have already scared me with the negative impacts on my family health care (which we are already seeing), national debt, poor job and markey recovery, and national security..
For economists, that number may sound awful, but it’s not surprising. The nation’s overall unemployment rate sits at 8.8 percent and the rate among white Americans is at 7.9 percent.

People also view the actual costs of a hobby as a “price of entry”, like the price of a ticket to a concert. They are spending money for the opportunity to spend their time, which is also mathematically illogical, but intuitively normal. When considering whether you can afford to go to a concert, I don know many people that add the ticket price to the money they could make if they just went to work instead to determine if it in the budget.It also seems that even if you dislike tying, but couldn afford to buy enough flies to fish as much as you otherwise would, you would have to weigh whether your love of fishing or dislike of tying wins out.TL;DR: How people would actually value their time is highly variable, has little correlation to financial reality, lots of correlation to emotional rewards, and is entirely irrational, because we are sentient meat bags who like to imagine ourselves as being important.
“What we’re seeing is a very consistent pattern underscoring the fact that Zika causes microcephaly and other severe brain abnormalities,” Jamieson said. Officials are anticipating local cases of Zika infection because the mosquito that is the primary vector, Aedes aegypti, is found throughout the South as well as in parts of the Southwest and even Midwest. The Senate approved $1.1 billion in funding in May.
