Has the Monster Awakened?
Teaching Inflation in Today’s Economics Classroom

Wednesday, September 8, 2021
7:00p – 8:30p ET (4:00p – 5:30p PT)

Presenter:  Debbie Henney, FTE Director of Curriculum


In July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that prices increased 5.4% over the past year, the largest 12-month increase in 13 years.  Should we be worried?  Will it last? What causes inflation? Who benefits? Who bears the costs?  This workshop features activities and resources to help you teach about inflation and engage students in the current dialogue and debate over inflation and the U.S. economy.

The workshop will be presented over the Zoom web conferencing platform. Participants will received a $50 Amazon gift card.
