My classroom is a house of share, and you have made it a den of thieves

Funny things that happened on the way to the book fair:

- A disappearing, reappearing wallet.

- Mob like money deals.

- A black market economy that involved tax evasion.

As furious as I was, it was hard to be mad at the entrepreneurs who justified their product. They were just meeting the demand of the class: the scarcity of the raw material made their product a hot commodity.

Should I worry that they learned their economics with me in 2nd grade?

I'm impressed by your ability to see the positive in this.
