I know it is a little early for Thanksgiving talk since it is still a couple of weeks away, but here is the question anyway:
What do you think are the economic effects of Thanksgiving?
Or you could just discuss the economic effects of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Again, the more creative the answers, the better. For example, I thought one of the best answers about the economics of Halloween was from Andrew, who talked about how all of the planning of Halloween parties and leaving work early to get little kids dressed up in their costumes, would probably cause a decrease in productivity that day.
