Economics doesn’t have to be difficult.  Just ask my three-year-old grandson…

Understanding Liberalism (True Story)

Cohen:  Papa can I have a treat?

Papa:  What do you want?

Cohen:  I want three Hershey’s Kisses.

Papa:  Okay, well first you have to sing a song for Grammy.

Cohen:  No I want YOU to sing Grammy a song and give me the Kisses.

Daddy:  Great!  He’s a liberal.

Alternative Ending:  Understanding Conservatism

Cohen:  Papa can I have a treat?

Papa:  What do you want?

Cohen:  I want three Hershey’s Kisses.

Papa:  Okay, well first you have to sing a song for Grammy.

Cohen:  If I sing YOU a song too, can I have six?

Daddy:  Great!  He’s Donald Trump.

Alternative Ending:  Understanding Debt

Cohen:  Papa can I have a treat?

Papa:  What do you want?

Cohen:  I want three Hershey’s Kisses.

Papa:  Okay, well first you have to sing a song for Grammy.

Cohen:  Give me the Kisses, THEN I’ll sing.

Daddy:  Where’s Dave Ramsey when you need him?

Understanding Entitlement

(Fast forward:  Cohen has earned his Kisses and has eaten two.  The third one falls on the floor.)

Cohen:  Whaaaaa!

Papa:  What’s wrong?

Cohen:  The dog ate my Kiss!

Papa:  Here, you can pick out another one.

(Cohen grabs three.)

Papa:  No, you’ve already had two.  Just pick one.

Cohen:  But I want three!

One More Alternative Ending:  Understanding LifeVesting

Cohen:  Papa can I have a treat?

Papa:  What do you want?

Cohen:  I want three Hershey’s Kisses.

Papa:  Okay, well first you have to sing a song for Grammy.

Cohen:  Okay.  (Sings “My God is So Big”)

Papa:  Okay, come pick out which Kisses you want.

Cohen:  Can I just get one, and later you take me to the donut shop?

Daddy:  Can I come too?
