Economic Education Events
Global Economic Forum 2012
A Two-Day Seminar for High School Teachers
August 6–7, 2012
Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, San Antonio Branch
This year's Global Economic Forum. Boston, Cleveland and Dallas Fed economists took us to Zimbabwe, Haiti, Uganda, Mexico and back to the U.S. Participants had an opportunity to join in the continuous and, at times, contentious debate in developmental economics—how to solve global poverty. Professor Anne Macy from West Texas A&M University showed how to transfer the content to the classroom.
The forum will ended with a videoconference featuring Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke addressing educators across the nation.
