PRIVATE EVENT – On Tuesday, March 4th, selected students at Noble Academy will be playing “Economy, Jr.” where players gain 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 running a business needing to make enough sales to cover this month’s overhead.

Business Cents, a small business bookkeeping service, is sponsoring the event with Shift, the Nussbaum Center’s startup group, providing assistance.
