Essay by:

Emporia State University

           Honestly, I never really cared about the economy and politics and how it affects me. I lived in a small country town in Texas all my life and now for the past three years I have lived in Emporia, Kansas. The only way we know anything about the DOW, NASDAQ, and all the other names used by those of Wall Street, is by the news on TV. Throughout my life, I have never had to worry about debt and how the economy could affect me. As far as I could tell, the only way it affected me was gas prices and the price of goods. I have now come to a different conclusion.    

 Who knew that we would be experiencing the economic difficulties we are today?  Many people of my generation are about to enter the real world and many are already there. The economy affects our current jobs, future jobs, cost of living, and life in general. Seeing and hearing what our economy is going through is scary. I never knew it affected my life so much. Now I am questioning if I am going to have a job when I graduate college and if I am even going to be able to survive on my own when I get into the real world.

I have finally realized that learning about the economy should be just as important as learning about the history of the United States. It all goes hand in hand. When there is a war there is money spent, when there is depression money is lost. All the major events that have happened in America have all had some affect on the national debt.

An even more recent issue is banks almost going bankrupt, needing a bailout just to stay alive so that more people do not go into debt. Today it is so easy to get a loan, almost anyone can. Businesses and corporations that have loans are going out of business and are not able to repay the loan because they have no money so the money that was loaned, is lost.

            Speaking of loans, what about student loans. For many that is the only way they can continue their education out of high school. With this recession occurring are student loans going to be harder to get. What is going to happen to our country, are we going to be able to come out of this recession and rebuild our economy?  With the new president about to take office time will only tell.

Hey Miranda,

I think that you had a very catchy title, Great Job! I really liked that fact that you used your own personal incites in the essay. You expressed your ways of thinking about the economy and what we are facing in the world today. I am in agreeance with you that learning about our economy and what is going on needs to be a priority in our lives and we should take the initiative to make a difference.

Great Job!

Miranda,

I really enjoyed your paper, it was interesting and easy to read. I can relate to you with not really knowing much about our economy. As a student I am also worried about college loans, hopefully these concerns will be addressed with our new president.

Miranda,

You did a really great job and I love your title. I was always in the same position as you. I did not really have any interest in anything but gas prices and the price of goods because i thought that was the only thing effecting me as well! I liked how you talked about college students just like us are about to enter the "real world" and all of these things will affect us so we need to know about it! I also liked your opinions on student loans and how important they are for college students! You are right, only time will tell, but hopefully with a new leader change will be made! Great job!

Re: Clueless to Concerned

Good essay. Way to be very down to earth with your writing style, almost a perfect inner reflection of the problems you face, that we all face as well. This essay is almost like the inner-voice within most American's today and how they have come to view the economy.

Nice job!

Re: Clueless to Concerned

I too like the catchy title, how you went from not careing, because the issues didn't involve you.to you actually careing because you realize as you get older it does involve you. very good essay.

Re: Clueless to Concerned

Miranda-I completely agree with your title, it says it all. I can honestly say that I had very little interest in what was happening until just recentely.


Re: Clueless to Concerned

Miranda,
I think I liked your paper the best!! I loved how you provided the needed statistical information and you also offered situtations from a more personal perspective. I think by doing this the reader will gain a better understanding. Great Job!!

Re: Clueless to Concerned

Yeah you tell everybody who is reading this. I to come from a small town in Kansas and let me tell you people she is absolutely right. Student loans are going to be lot harder to get now. You people had better bet that the economy is going to effect your jobs in the future. I am lucky to even have a job now.
