Economists love to talk about trade. Why is that? Canadians want oranges in the middle of winter and have no way to efficiently grow them on their own. Trading is a way to encourage Florida orange grove owners to produce more than they, their family and friends could ever eat to give to people who are able to produce other things they might like to trade.
 
Join us for this fun webinar to learn about many easy resources to teach about the topic of trade K-12.
