Unit 4 Economics of SWA Test on this Friday, November 16, 2018.

This is an OPTIONAL Quizlet link to help study the Economics of SWA  Matrix. (Optional means that it is not something that you have to or need to use).

Again, this is not a requirement, just an optional way of studying the matrix that I created from the classnotes we will cover later this week.
