The importance of Economics and the best way to teach it

June 4, 2020

A recent episode of the RN program The Economists talked about why Economics is important and the best way to teach it.


I was interested in Justin Wolfers' four principles of Economics. In particular, his explanation of the principle of interdependence – reflected the effect that my knowledge and understanding of Economics affects my everyday life.

After hearing about it in the program, I found a video showing a MONIAC operating at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Museum and Education Centre. It may be a great hook for Year 11 and 12 macroeconomics – or just exciting for economics teachers like us?
