Truman’s Letter- March 2017

Hi, Kids!

This issue is about economics, more specifically, the Great Depression. It was a hard time for a lot of people. You can read more about it in the “Connections” section.

The Great Depression affected the entire Western world, including America and Europe, so “Wildville” talks about European bison. They are a bit different from the bison you will find in the U.S.

Did you know there are people who study the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services? These people are called economists. Tibor Besedes is an Associate Professor at the School of Economics at Georgia

Institute of Technology. He is an economist who studies behavioral economics, experimental economics and international trade. You can read more about him in the “What’s It Like to Be …” section.

If you could pick something to study, what would it be?
