I think she means people who think ho is spelled h-o-e.

gladiator wrote:It depends on whether or not I'm going to stay in my 1L place. If I'm staying I'll probably just leave everything there and get stuck paying the rent. If I'm going to move out, maybe I'd consider taking all my stuff out and subleasing it for the summer.

gladiator wrote:My thinking was....
10 cents per person per hour
=2,000,000 for the additional murders
8 more murders
=$250,000 per murder

Harmony Hills is a residential community with 30,000 households. Assume that 10,000 work for Slimline Foods, making processed meals, and that 20,000 work for Apple's Pies, making deserts. Although Slimline and Apple's are equally distant from Harmony Hills and the same skills are required by the two employers, workers in Slimline are paid 10 cents per hour more than those at Apple's. After some investigation, you learn that the areas where Slimline is located has averaged 10 murders per year compared to 2 per year at Apple's. If workers typically are paid for 2,000 hours per year, what does this imply about the economic costs of murder?
