Boston Fed Releases Online Games, Sharpening Economic Understanding

 

April 1 - Itís baseball season again in Boston Ė time to break out your peanuts and crackerjacks! The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has announced the latest release of Peanuts & Crackerjacks, an online learning tool that fosters economic education in the form of a fun animated game. Players explore the market for professional team sports Ė how leagues gained market power, why tickets cost so much, why athletes earn as much as they do and why there is so much economic conflict in professional team sports.

Peanuts & Crackerjacks joins other online learning materials created by the Boston Fed to advance economic understanding, including:

Like Peanuts & Crackerjacks, the online learning content provides students and adults with accessible and fun ways to learn about economics in the classroom or at home. All Boston Fed online learning tools are available at www.bostonfed.org/education/online/index.htm.

Further economic education tools are available on the Boston Fed's website at www.bostonfed.org/education/index.htm.
