Show Business: The Economics of Entertainment
January 1, 2010
"Another Action Hero," the second of four stand-alone units of an online curriculum series, focuses on what the film industry can teach us about the economics of international trade and globalization.
The entire series is meant to provide an additional tool for teaching and learning about basic economic concepts and history through the entertainment industry. Each unit includes an online game component, narrative background materials, supplemental activities, discussion questions, and a resources section. The first module, "Climbing the Charts," is also available.
