Economics is called the “dismal science,” and these days that reputation seems well-desreved! However, let’s try to have as much fun as we can, even as capitalism melts down around us! (OK, let me rephrase that: let’s have fun precisely because capitalism is melting down around us!).
Here are a couple of items to liven up your local popular economics course:
1. A list of films and other AV resources that can be shown in conjunction with the economics courses.
2. A word search puzzle (I’m not kidding!) designed to test your knowledge of the history of economic thought … and convey an important (hidden) message to the economics profession.
