When YOU are the Supply.
One of the topics students struggle with most is labor markets–particularly their role within them. The law of demand seems intuitive (we all want stuff). So does the law of supply generally (we're all consumers, too). But when discussing labor markets, students seem to see "demanders" and "suppliers" upside down! Perhaps students have become too used to seeing themselves as consumers...
And especially for those of you working with students, we're excited to announce the launch of a NEW quarterly newsletter, #TeachEcon, beginning in January 2021, focused on teaching economics. You'll hear from master teachers at all levels, find out about new classroom resources from Econlib and beyond, and discover teaching tips big and small. You can subscribe here to make sure you don't miss our inaugural issue. We're also still looking for contributors, let us know at email@example.com or on social media.
In closing, here in the States, we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving soon. We never want to miss an opportunity to say how thankful we are for YOU. You're why we're here.
Until next month, stay well and stay curious.
P.S. Last November at our sister site, AdamSmithWorks, our friend Heather King ruminated on what Smith might make of this particularly American holiday.
