Powell Center for Economic Literacy

Summary: Lesson Plans. Infusionomics.

The Powell Center for Economic Literacy is a wealth of economic resources. There are lesson plans, teacher and student programs. The latest addition it a three-year program to infuse economics into every day thinking. A link to Infusionomics is here.

I highly endorse Infusionomics. Economics is tool to help analyze and make decisions. Infusionomics integrates the economic way of thinking into daily decisions. This is the goal of economic instruction.

Later this year, the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank will host a Sunday night conference sponsored by the Powell Center. Details will emerge later.
