Economic Freedom…or not!

Block 1:  ATTENTION STUDENTS:  You will need to make a slight change to your graph x and y axis information.  The Y axis will be the Index of Economic Freedom rating and the X axis will be the Country name and the GDP (write out the number NOT just $25 trillion).  We completed our basic research today and you were given the instructions for the Graphing Economics Project.  NOTE:  For North Korea, you will need to look at Korea, Dem Rep.  You are looking for the GDP.  Your graph project is due on Monday, 01.24.  We will NOT be working on this in class.  Tomorrow we will complete the natural resources and entrepreneur portion and questions in the packet.  Completed answer sheet is due on Friday

Blocks 2, 3, 4, and 5:  We have finished comparing the countries of Europe’s economies and have begun looking at the factors that determine placement on a continuum.  You have used the Economic Freedom Index to help us with creating our own continuum.  Research and completed continuum is due on Friday.  Tomorrow we will complete the natural resources and entrepreneur portion and questions in the packet.  Completed answer sheet is due on Friday
