The Prisoner’s Solution – Podcast and Question Sheet

Michael Albanese

22nd January 2017

This NPR podcast from Planet Money (question sheet below) tells the story of Frederick, whose first business enterprise landed him in prison for 5 years. His next venture, which involved meeting the needs of the “captive” market he now knew so well, helped him to develop a $3m business!

It is full of Business Studies concepts, and the questions sheet makes for a ready-made and interesting revision session on entrepreneurship, growth, risk and reward.
