Stephens Inc., 111 Center Street, Little Rock, AR 72201

Economists love to talk about trade. Why is that? Canadians want oranges in the middle of winter and have no way to efficiently grow them on their own. Trading is a way to encourage Florida orange grove owners to produce more than they, their family and friends could ever eat to give to people who are able to do other things.

In the trade game, participants will learn how to demonstrate some of the benefits of trade to their students and to think through questions like, “When is a trade a fair trade?” and “How can we increase the benefits that individuals in poor countries receive from being trading partners with rich countries?”

Participants will receive:
2 hours of professional development credit
ready to use resources
light snacks
$25 stipend
