Human Capital reading

--> This is a college level Economics book called Naked Economics by Charles Wheelan

--> You will be reading Chapter 6 from the link below


* I think this is the most important reading we do in this class and the points the author makes are even more meaningful RIGHT NOW.

Reading due date: Next Wednesday (4/15)

--> BEFORE next Wednesday I will have a discussion task for you to do on Canvas.  At the due date, we will use Canvas again to discuss more in depth the concept of "Human Capital" and the points the author is trying to make.
