Much has been written about the economics of Daylight Saving Time. But I’m more interested in the emotional tradeoffs of the concept, which I view as an emotional wash. The annoyance of losing an hour in the spring is balanced by the fact that, to reset your digital clocks, you only need to press the hour button once. On the other hand, don’t complain about having to press the hour button 11 (or 23 times) in the fall; you’re getting an extra hour on Saturday night.
And thus emotional balance is achieved when it comes to dealing with Daylight Saving Time.
