Economics Word Search Puzzle!
OK this one is a bit nerdy, I admit it.
I’ve been working on various popular education tools to go along with Economics for Everyone (my economics “textbook” for unionists and other activists), trying to make the material as accessible and entertaining as possible — and making it as easy as possible for local activists to sponsor their own courses.Â This includes course outlines, student exercises, an on-line glossary, and other support materials — all downloadable for free from the e4e site (www.economicsforeveryone.ca).
This week I’ve even put up a word search puzzle, involving various figures from the history of economic thought, and featuring a politically-correct secret message that is visible only when you have correctly filled in all the answers.
Here’s the link to the puzzle, for any other nerds out there:
Anyone want to give it a try?Â Let me know if you spot any mistakes.Â (As you will see, I already encountered one issue resulting from the mis-spelling of a certain nerdy Italian economist’s first name!)
The Vancouver & District Labour Council is now 3 weeks into a weekly popular economics course based on e4e, which sounds like it’s going well.Â Other union-sponsored courses using the book include the Edmonton Labour Council, and groups in Scotland, Australia, and possibly New Zealand.
