Just kidding. I think. Hopefully I haven't been too effected by the usual Toronto gruffness. I remember when I first came here it felt a little unsettling to see so many stern faces marching around downtown. I think it's a happier place now that so much of the world has come here.
Anyway - I think this sort of approach to economics is great. We ignore the true cost of things far too easily.
