In this decision-making simulation, students try to maximise their scores based on their chosen economic policies.

In Economic Meltdown students are provided with a choice of 16 possible government policies that might be used to meet the economic objectives of:

  • Low Unemployment

  • Economic Growth
  • Positive impact on the environment

Can they make choices that keep their team score above zero and avoid economic meltdown?
