Economic education is about more than financial literacy. It's also about the larger economic forces that impact everyone's financial circumstances in the present and future. With equity markets as the model, the Stock Market Game™ is designed to give Georgia teachers a tool for showing students how scarcity, trade, opportunity cost, voluntary exchange, price incentive, specialization, productivity, and many other economic concepts play out in financial institutions they hear about in the news almost daily. Unlike real equity markets, the Stock Market Game™ offers students a safe and pain-free place to learn that the lessons of market economics can sometimes be costly. Olivia Scarbrough, Addison Smith, and Rayne Hannah were recently notified that they had increased their portfolio value to $103,122.08.  They received t-shirts and certificates from the Georgia Council on Economic Education.  Pictured with the students is Candace Simpson, team advisor and Coordinator of Gifted Services.
