Troup County's Got Seoul

Welcome back to school everyone! What a great time to be an economics teacher. Say what you will about the current miserable state of the economy, or the increased levels of government intervention in the economy, but I think we can all agree that studying economics is about as popular as it has ever been in this country. So much doom and gloom to share with the kids, so little time before the EOCT! Where do you even start?

Well maybe it is not all doom and gloom. Take for example Kia. The South Korean vehicle manufacturer is coming to Georgia (actually they are already here). Soon Kia will be churning out new Sedona's or Soul's or whatever vehicles they plan on producing in West Point, GA.

I would be interested in hearing from any teachers that live in Kia's part of the state. What do you think? Is this going to be a good deal or has the state given away too much to lure Kia to Troup County?
