A couple weeks ago, YAL @ North Carolina School of the Arts participated in the Economics 101 event. We had a lot of fun and had a great turnout. We set up a table for a week in our main commons building and used the Jenganomics kit and the Rags or Riches kit.
As people attempted to play Jenganomics, they enjoyed the analogy we created and agreed with free market economics over a government-run economy. Most were caught off guard to find out the ranking of the most free economic countries, and didn’t realize the US wasn’t in the top. We ended the week with an interested meeting and had a good turnout. We look forward to organizing and participating in the next YAL event on our campus! Below are some pictures from our event!
