Bob Collins took a look at the pocket economy, in which the economic "truth is best uncovered by the worker bees among us." He points not to the professors and economists but to a package delivery driver and a server, two people who shared their daily experiences with the ebb and flow of business. They don't just say business is sllllooooowwwww, they give some examples.
That's not enough for Collins. He's looking for what you discover and asks you to survey the people you meet who take your money in routine business and report back. Think of how many people you deal with on any given day...maybe we can get an interesting picture of the money world around us.
