Welcome to Rye Country Day's Economic Blog. Here you will find perspectives by students taking Economics at Rye Country Day School. It is meant to be a forum where students can openly express their ideas and take positions on relevant economic issues. I urge everyone to participate in presenting their own ideas in an open manner so that we can all learn from each other. Regardless of whether you are currently taking Economics, everyone is invited and encouraged to comment on articles and get involved. Feel free to e-mail me, Alex Osborne at firstname.lastname@example.org , with comments or suggestions.

Featured Entry - A Battle for Control of the Web
People’s usage of the internet is increasing more and more as the years progress. Services such as Yahoo and Google are causing user to need and use much more bandwidth. To accommodate for the increased usage, internet service providers spend millions of dollars to lay down more high speed cables. These internet service providers want to begin charging these web companies because they should incur some of the charges since they are causing the need for cable lines. I believe that if web companies are charged, then they may start charging users to use their services, something I am definitely not looking forward to.
