Economy, Jr. provides students with insight into both sides of the economic coin by having them choose at the start of the game whether they want to play as a customer spending a month’s paycheck from their chosen career on necessities such as housing, groceries, child care, and more or as a merchant selling these products to customers to cover daily overhead and hopefully post a profit.
Designed to take place in a standard 40 minute class time, Economy, Jr. offers the best in real world financial and business education for 4-32 participants with just 4 volunteers needed to run. The 90 minute version allows participants to play as both customer and merchant.
