The Prisoner’s Solution – Podcast and Question Sheet
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.
