Wow, this was a nice and fun game. Easy mode was, well easy (not surprisingly) and hard mode was, well hard!
I do have a few suggestions for you, because I think some of the puzzles have double meanings:
time after time OR time and time again
you're out of line OR you're out of place
Also, I found the 'rising economy' one wasn't done very well. It looked squished more than rising.
Anyways, great job.
