The Trading Game has been added to the convention schedule for the following day and time: Saturday, 11:30am-12:30pm.
Join Marianna Brashear and FEE Staff for this exciting hands-on workshop for teens (ages 12+). Through the Trading Game students will experience firsthand the power of markets. It’s one of the most engaging and memorable activities used to learn about gains from trade. Voluntary exchanges occur when each person involved believes he or she will be better off. Wealth, as measured by satisfaction levels in this activity, is created through the ‘magic’ of trade – even when no new items are produced. Students actually get to trade with one another and experience the excitement first hand and maybe even walk away with some freebies! Learn more at FEE.org/educate.
