Teachers will be able to:

  • Use an everyday good/service to explain the outcomes of divergent economic systems.
  • Build an understanding of global economic history. 

This video is available to view for EconEdLink members only.

In this economics webinar, use history and design to demonstrate how divergent economies affect international consumption and diplomacy.
