Three Cheers for Specialization and the Division of Labor

by Tom Bozzo

By exchanging money with men who own big tools, I just turned at least a solid weekend's shrub removal drudgery into something that happened in the interval of time from when I got out of the shower to when I'm leaving for work (which I haven't yet done). Yay, economy!
Homer: Aw, twenty dollars! I wanted a peanut!
Homer's Brain: Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts!
Homer: Explain how!
Homer's Brain: Money can be exchanged for goods and services!
Homer: Woo-hoo!
Best prime-time appearance of economics ever!
