I was looking at all my friends on facebook trying to think who would be a good person to ask a question I had about economics. When I sat back and thought about it, a good 90% of my friends are completely uneducated when it comes to the Fed, fiscal policy or Government for that matter.

Anyone else in the same boat, can't have an intelligent debate with friends?
Or am I on the fringe for thinking people should know who Bernanke and Geithner are?

Are they really un-educated? Or do they simply disagree with you on the matter? Or do you simply not know how "educated" they are on the matter because you don't talk to them about it?

most highschools don't offer economics courses, so i'd say most of them don't know anything unless they educate themselves.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

90% (conservative estimate) of my friends couldn't tell me what Bernanke and Geithner do.
Why would you think they simply disagreed with me? I'm saying they know nothing about the federal reserve, let alone have an opinion on the matter.

What do you base that off of? Have you asked them or are you assuming?

This will trump everything

Me: They say to take revenge you must dig two graves
Dumb Peron: Nice try! There's also cremation.

Teacher: Can anybody tell me what a plateau is?
Dumb person: Is it a type of French cake?

Teacher: Which US army general spear-headed the DDAY landings?
Dumb person: What's spear-headed mean?

Teacher: Can anybody tell me which sea is closes to Serbia?
Dumb Person: The Arctic Sea?

Teacher: DNA is made up of four nucleotides, which are what?
Dumb person: D, N, and A. I forgot the fourth one.
