Interact Simulations

Our Guarantee


Five mini-simulations use realistic situations to demonstrate the relevance of economics. In one simulation, students receive "paychecks" and then budget for housing, transportation, insurance, and consumer purchases; their choices are affected by the business cycle and a supply/demand curve. In another, players become members of a community—from the wealthy doctor to the widow on a small pension—who must cooperate to resolve a tax crisis. In a third simulation, students form and operate partnerships and corporations. The other simulations deal with entrepreneur borrowers vs. "the Fed" and international trade, currencies, and economic crises. Housed in a three-ring binder are daily teaching directions and reproducible pages for students. Players: entire class. Time: 5–10 hours each. Grades 10–12. 8½" x 11". Interact. 143 pages.
