Seventh in an eight-part series of professional development workshops designed to give high school teachers ideas about how to present economics in a way that will excite, inform, and entice students. Focuses on how the government influences the economy through a combination of fiscal and monetary policies. Looks at the federal budget and the functions and powers of the Federal Reserve System. Teachers use a variety of techniques (lecture/discussion, demonstration, simulation) to teach about the effects of monetary and fiscal policy on aggregate supply and aggregate demand.
