The last couple of days I’ve been watching the sort of movies that challenged me to think about money theoretically.So to brush up on stuff I last had to deal with some 15 years ago I’ve been surfing the net for the sort of stuff found in basic economics books.In case you too need a small revision or you are totally new to economics here’s a chance to catch up.
