A parable on shopping locally.
On Get Rich Slowly — a great personal finance blog — somebody posted this great observation about the value of shopping locally. Econ majors will no doubt find cause to cringe, but I think it’s a brilliant parable. And I love the question “Who’s your farmer?” That’s a question we should all be able to answer.
