Gambling on economics

Posted By on Fri, Jul 23, 2010 at 10:35 AM

I think I mentioned this last year because I was amused by the notion of holding a lottery to raise money for better economics education in Arkansas.

Anyway, it's back. Economics Arkansas is raffling a monster Z71 Chevy Silverado. Odds are better than the state lottery. Tickets are $100. 1,999 will be sold. (I'll leave it to you to do the math on the odds, but I think you can.)

Truck comes with a winch, by the way. Not a wench.
