We really enjoyed having behavioral economist Dan Ariely on State if Things for a full hour today. If you missed it, you can catch this (or any other) episode online or in podcast.
Hillside High seniors Tahja Jordan and Jasir Haynes play Payback, an online game about the true cost of college. Durham-based McKinney advertising agency created the game for the financial literacy nonprofit Next Gen Personal Finance. Jordan and Haynes were among a class at Hillside High who recently got the opportunity to try out the game, which was recently launched. This is the time of year when high school seniors are beginning to fill out financial aid applications and get their first college acceptance letters. Many will take out their very first loan next year, but have never had a lesson in personal finance. Creators of the online game hope to change that.

Eleanor holds the new book she received from her New Bern pediatrician, Dr. David Tayloe, during her 1 year check up. Tayloe gives books to patients at each of their well visits from 6 months to 5 years of age, as part of the Reach Out And Read program. The organization, which operates in three-quarters of North Carolina counties, is directed at closing the so-called 'word gap'. On average, poor children hear 30 million words less than their wealthier peers by the time they turn three – in the conversations their parents and other adults have with or around them, and in stories read aloud to them.

North Carolina cotton farmer David Dunlow stands in one of his cotton fields outside Roanoke Rapids. Low cotton prices and a couple of bad weather years have unseated North Carolina as one of the leading cotton-producing states. Traditionally ranked around 3rd or 4th, the state is now 8th in cotton production, according to USDA November projections. Longtime farmers like Dunlow are starting to wonder if it’s still worth growing cotton.
