ECON kickoff Oct 29-30

Today’s kickoff is not easy.  I’m asking you to imagine a world without money.

<copy and paste these questions to a new blog post>

1.   Why do you think the money in your pocket, or bank account, has value?   It’s just paper, right?

2.   Imagine an economy with no currency (paper money or coins).   What could people use to pay for things they want?

3.   What characteristics would this new “money” have to have?

4.   If you lived in an economy that didn’t have paper money, and you had to barter (trade) for the things you needed, what could you offer in trade?

200+ words.  Add a relevant photo, spellcheck and publish.
