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:

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.”
