Raffo was impressed (I told him it was easy though) but he countered by telling me he got 10/10 in a quiz about The Young Ones.

I also thought there was one to which the answer was, "It depends."

It does make an assumption that all pensioners are sitting on investment pots, rather than some of them having to borrow to finance purchases.

I scored 8/8. I studied (in the loose sense) economics for a year at college. As I had nothing to show for that, a few years later I entered the Higher Economics exam, read through my old textbooks, and was awarded my only Higher 'A'. I remember going up the town to the Pizzaland buffet for lunch between papers :-).

(In the "The Young Ones" quiz: 9/10.)

A quiz about The Youngs Ones you say, that is a degree worth doing, and probably exists at something like Thames Valley, or Salford, or East Anglia, he says trying not to be geographist.

in my experience the answer is 'yes' if you have a high tolerance for tedium!

How much do you really know about The Young Ones?

8/8. Us infant teachers know how the world works. I would hate to study economics although I did explain tax and the need for businesses to make money to my 7 year olds in DT this afternoon. One of them was listening!
