Monetary Mania


 

Wanting to present some factual information about macroeconomics to high school students in an engaging way, the IMF asked us to develop an online trivia quiz. We recognized that much of the excitement of such quizzes (from Trivial Pursuit to Wheel of Fortune) derives from the social element, so we developed this trivia quiz show in which you compete against two other players (representing the typical knowledge of high school students and college econ majors).

Trading Around The World


 

"The technicalities of international trade may be a snooze for middle school students, but a fast-paced game that challenges the player to buy low and sell high is just the ticket. We took an onsite activity and programmed a trading model that matches the player with computerized traders from around the world. Prices respond to the overall health of the global economy, and players can see how commodity prices change over time."

Where in the world and What in the world is Money?


 

"So you think you know what money is? It's those little round coins and paper bills printed by the government with someone's face on one side, right? What if money isn't a coin or a banknote or even a credit card? They may be common now. But not everyone in the world has used these forms of money for very long at all. Throughout history and around the globe, many different things have served as money. Play this game to find out just what money has been. You'll need to keep your wits about you if you want to get home. . . ."
