I’ll bet you thought this was going to be a dog lovers story. Don’t get us wrong, we love dogs. However, this is an observation piece about the economy.
I’ll date myself, does anyone remember having a Duncan Yo-Yo? Remember the trick “walk the dog”? When performed by a talented kid (I was not) the yo-yo is released from the hand with enough force to allow it to spin at the end of the string and stay there. The yo-yo-ist (I made that up) then has the yo-yo walk along the ground for a couple of feet then tugs on the string and the yo-yo returns to the hand.
