Money: The True Story of a Made Up Thing (Virtual)
Saturday, August 14, 2021
We all use money in our daily lives, but few of us actually
ponder how and why it works. Jacob Goldstein, cohost of
NPR’s Planet Money, has done the heavy lifting
for us in his enthralling account, Money: The True Story
of a Made-Up Thing. This event will focus on the
origin, functions, and potential future of money. Jacob Goldstein
will share highlights from his book and economics educators will
demonstrate a variety of original classroom activities to help
students understand the nature of money.
The co-sponsors of this event – the California Council on Economic Education, the Georgia Council on Economic Education, and the Thomas R. Brown Foundation – will provide attendees with digital instructional resources and a $25 Grubhub credit.
The first 100 registrants receive a complimentary copy of Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing.
