Unformatted text preview: EEP 101/ Econ 125, Spring 2009 Professor Zilberman Problem Set 3 Due Thursday, April 16 Now I'll tell you, he says, with his teeth sounding gray, I felt a great leaping of joy in my heart. how the Lorax got lifted and taken away. . . I knew just what I'd do! It all started way back. . . I unloaded my cart. In no time at all, I had built a small shop. Such a long, long time back. . .
