Professor in my Pocket.

Although I am not the most well versed individual when it comes to speaking about economics, I do believe that I can provide some comments that hold water from time to time. When it comes to the very complex systems concerning the matter, it is typically best to consult an expert, but these people are not readily available when needed. Oh how I wish that I had a professor in my pocket, and I am not speaking of smart phone technology or any of that jazz. Instead, it would be brilliant to have an individual that could break it all down, explain it in a manner that would be appropriate, and answer questions concerning it. I suppose that this will never happen, so I best start doing my own research.
Regardless of my utopian thoughts, I began to realize an issue in Sardinia when I was there last. The island is one of the most beautiful places that I have ever been to, and there is a wealth of resources that are readily available. The issue, or so I was told, was the high cost of transporting them. Sardinia is an island and transporting natural resources is expensive. Therefore, The island see little economic activity when compared to relatively similarly sized areas. To me this raises more questions than I can even begin to fathom.
This idea came to be after a brief discussion with one of the staff at the hilton sardinia hotel. This particular individual explained the situation for me as simply as possible and really did shine some light on an issue that I was unaware of. I suppose that doubletree hotel sardinia staff member was like that professor in my pocket. It is just too bad that I could not take him home with me. Then again, who would want to leave such a beautiful place anyways?
