[Note: the August 30th event has been cancelled]
PUBLIC (FREE) EVENT – On Saturday, August 16th and 23rd from 1:00 to 3:00pm, Asheboro Public Library will hold Economy, Jr. free for area teens sponsored by Truliant Federal Credit Union.
The goal of these events is to teach young adults about real world economics by having them play through the game as a customer spending a month’s paycheck on bills for housing, utilities, child care, groceries, and more for them and their families without going bankrupt. The other half of participants will play as the merchants selling products and services to customers with the aim of covering their overhead costs and posting a profit. Customers and merchants which switch roles half way through the game to experience both sides of the economic coin.
The entrepreneur support group Shift, Nussbaum Center’s Entrepreneur Group, is helping organize volunteers for the Saturday events.
