Find out who you are and do it on purpose.
– Dolly Parton

It’s easy to think the economy has nothing to do with you – you can’t see it, feel it, or engage with it in any tangible way, and if it comes up in the news, it might sound too boring and complicated to bother with. But in fact, the economy is nothing but the cumulative result of the way you live your life, and the way everyone around you lives theirs. Our behavior, choices, and values shape the economy and our place within it. So if we’re trying to work out how the economy works, the best place to start is the economics of our own lives.
