Children are economists, it's time to chat about it! Kids make choices using economics each day when they decide which shirt to wear, which TV show to watch or what to eat for lunch. In making these choices, they are using the principles of scarcity, supply, demand, opportunity costs and diminishing returns. Written for families of elementary-age children, Let's Chat About Economics illustrates basic economic principles through everyday examples like food shopping, planning a family trip, saving allowance and buying the latest, must-have tech gadget. Through economics, children will learn they too are a scarce and valuable resource!
