Rhino Times Publishes Economy Jr LTE

rhino-screenshotThe Rhino Times published a letter to the editor about Sunday’s Economy Jr event at Deep Roots in their January 16th issue:

PRACTICAL ECONOMICS
“DEAR EDITOR,
The opinions on what’s wrong with the economy span the political spectrum, but the solutions seem few and far between.

While it won’t solve the national debt overnight or Congress’s inability to balance a budget, I want to invite those concerned about our economic climate to do their part to educate the next generation on how the economy actually works by enrolling a young person in the free “Economy, Jr” financial and business literacy game taking place this Sunday, Jan. 19 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Deep Roots Market in Downtown Greensboro.”
