    I took an econ class as a graduation requirement in high school.

    We had to do a budget for a pulled-from-a-hat income and career. Including income taxes.

    We were just handed a simplified worksheet on a slip of paper that included the marginal rate concept, but there was no discussion of what was actually going on there but 'this is how it is, fill it out'.

    And forget covering marginal rates as a concept in math class. At any level. Did not happen.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
