Leap Day: 1/366th of the economy
Are today's economic benefits really worth leaping over?
This final note today: the economic advantages of adding a day to the year.
Not a whole lot, it turns out.
1/366th of added economic activity doesn't really do much in the grand scheme of things.
Individually, though, think about this:
If you get an hourly wage, today was a chance to earn a little bit more money.
If you're on salary, you basically worked for free today.
