Why Economics Should Be Taught in High School (HT to Dr. Mankiw)

Greg Mankiw has a post that speaks to any economic educator. I found this particularly relevant after coming back from the annual meeting of the National Council on Economic Education (NCEE)/National Association of Economic Educators (NAEE)/Global Association of Teachers of Economics (GATE) in Denver, Colorado last week.

If economics were required of all high school students, I firmly believe we would still get the government we deserve, but we might find we deserve better. As always, I welcome your thoughts.
