Jenganomics was a smash hit at the University of Texas at San Antonio! Even the Young Democrats turned out at the YAL table to help “stimulate” the economy. We spent the week explaining to Roadrunners the harms of redistribution. Most got the point that the idea of stimulus and bailouts only destabilize the economy while giving off the appearance of growth.
Rags or Riches went pretty well, too. We offered a prize of Sour Patch candy to anyoe who could guess five out of the ten slots correctly.
All in all, Jenganomics and Rags or Riches are attention-getters. Both will remain an activity for students at our YAL tabling sessions for years to come.
