Are you an economite?

You might be an economite if you …

prefer city lights to starry skies in wide open spaces;

agree that a college education is worth going into significant debt;

patronize stores in which the majority of the goods were made in Communist China;

believe that illegal immigrants are needed to ‘do the jobs Americans won’t do’;

forego family time to work to afford more expensive gadgets, clothes, and trips;
are making minimum payments on credit card debt;

subscribe to Forbes magazine;

are bored without modern entertainment like sports teams, video games, social networking sites, reality shows, and iTunes;

think free trade agreements (like NAFTA, CAFTA, and KORUS FTA) benefit our economy;

support politicians who think economic growth is always beneficial to a community;

frequent casinos; or

eat to thrive rather than to survive.
