I hate to sound like a self-important boob

But I worked through an undergrad education in Economics with honors, and all I got from it is pointless conversations with people who think they know something about Econ telling me crap they heard on talk radio or read on the Drudgereport. Groan… The Dunning-Kruger Effect rears it’s ugly head. If you don’t know what that is, read it before you become the next victim ;).
