A one day seminar just for high school students, with a particular focus on homeschoolers. 20 November 2009. Sponsored by Jeremy S. Davis. Recorded at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama.
The Mises Institute educates young students through our website and publications. Now, we are conducting a one day seminar just for high-school students -- with a particular focus on homeschoolers.
There is no charge at all for this event. It does provide an excellent introduction to the whole field of economics and why it matters for understand history and society and the ups and downs of civilization itself. Without economic understanding, we are left without a critical tool for understanding vast amounts of the social sciences.
The high school years are the perfect time to begin to introduce economic logic as a discipline. But too often, economics is presented as if it has nothing to do with real life. In fact, it is the very pith of life, as this seminar will show. It might be the first step to a lifetime romance with the subject.
