National Economics ChallengeSM (NEC)

2014 national economics challenge finals winners Teaching Opportunity   June 2014These were just a couple of the tough questions NEC finalists answered correctly to take home the win:

  1. Quantitative easing places what type of pressure on the international value of the dollar?
  2. Of the components of GDP, which is the most important for long-run economic growth?

The 14th Annual National Economics Challenge top-prize winners were students from Bellaire High School in Houston, Texas for the Adam Smith Division, (for advanced placement, international baccalaureate and honors students) and Hunter College High School in New York City for the David Ricardo Division (for students who have only taken a single-semester economics course).

2014 conference small Teaching Opportunity   June 2014“I have attended many other educational conferences but the conference in Baltimore was unique. In short:

  • Presenters and sponsors were high powered
  • Presentations followed the ABC’s of good presentations (Accurate, Clear, and Brief enough to keep our attention)
  • Well run, professional, sophisticated, and with a touch of elegance

Most conferences have some of these elements—very few have them all as this one did. I look forward to attending the 53rd in Dallas.”

Irvin Hall, CTE Teacher
Hampton City Schools, Hampton, VA
