Supply and Demand

The other day, Younger asked for money to purchase one gadget or another.

“You already owe me money,” I reminded him.

“Oh. Yeah.” He titled his head to the side. “You know, I think I should charge an hourly rate for my mere presence. And you would owe me money.”

So I explained some economics: “That only works when the demand is greater than the supply.”

And his dad explained some economics: “She already has to put up with me for free.”

But the only economics Younger learned?

His mere presence isn’t accepted as part of the product-currency exchange at Walmart.

Younger has decided he doesn’t like economics.
