Product Description
Students take on different roles in a group-setting to influence their President to increase the budgets of their departments. The President is tasked with both reducing the sizable national deficit and producing a budget that will satisfy Congress. As deliberate cuts start getting made, the President watches the impact of their budget choices on the nation's infrastructure and on public approval.

This is an activity designed for small or large groups to facilitate Voluntary National Content Standards in Economics 20: Fiscal and Monetary Policy. Through this activity, students will learn to anticipate the impact of federal government and Federal Reserve System macroeconomic policy decisions on themselves and others.
