Price: $0.00

A rapid succession of interactive scenarios demonstrate how a local economy creates wealth.
Players will:

  • Gain economic insights that are very difficult to replicate in a traditional classroom setting
  • Internalize complex economic concepts like value added and wealth concentration
  • Experience how import and export activities can fundamentally alter the economy's structure

Six rounds
Each round introduces important concepts and raises questions that prime productive discussions:
Rounds 1-3 Growth from within, without trade or outside help. Concepts include value added, productivity, and wealth distribution
Round 4 Risks and rewards of export growth
Round 5 Effect of distant ownership of a value-adding activity
Round 6 Impact of commuting from one community to another for work

Application of concepts

  • Discussions of historic developments in a local economy
  • Defining strategies for durable growth

Authors: Paul A. Lewin, Extension Specialist, Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology, University of Idaho, and Willem J. Braak, Independent Consultant, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, and former Extension Educator, University of Idaho
