A friendly mob in search of good deals

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 — A mob is going to break out in Albemarle at 5 p.m. Thursday.

A Cash Mob that is.

The mob will meet at Courthouse Square with money in hand.  

This is a nationwide movement where the concept is simple: with $20 in hand, members of a community come together to shop in a locally-owned establishment to support their favorite local business and support the area economy.  

The target business will be revealed at the event, although there are already hints on Facebook, Twitter and downtown.   

This event is sponsored by the Albemarle Downtown Business Association.

  • Do White Castle prices tell us anything about the minimum wage?

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
