This module covers the economic concept of Trade. Trade is the “magic” of economics—it is the way that two people with scarce resources can both gain. In a voluntary trade, both traders benefit! But in a complex world, trade creates losers as well as winners. Students who understand the shifting tides of local, national, and international trade are more prepared to take advantage to the great benefits that it can bring. This module also includes some review of supply and demand concepts.
This session is one part of a series of in-class sessions and out-of-class work designed to cover all of the economic concepts in the high school Economics and Personal Finance course. This session and its accompanying homework will comprise 13% of the total series (3 hours in-person, and 4 hours homework).
While particularly helpful for those teaching economics and personal finance, any teacher wanting to deepen their economic knowledge will find the institute beneficial. Participants who successfully complete all six modules (42 hours) and pass a post-test will be recognized as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: High School. See the other scheduled session listed below.
Fee: NO CHARGE
Parking and a light dinner is provided.

6/23/2016, 9:00-4:00, Modules 5 & 6 - Macroeconomics, role of government, Federal Reserve System
