Understanding Global Economic Issues Workshop
Sandhills Global was the perfect setting for the Oct, 24 seminar “Understanding Global Economic Issues,” hosted by the UNL Center for Economic Education. Twenty-one teachers spent the day immersed in discussions around the economics of international trade and current trade issues. The program included presentations from several experts: Dr. Don Fell (Foundation for Teaching Economics), Dr. Diana Thomas (AIER), Chuck Lewis (Sandhills Global) and Jill O’Donnell (Yeutter Institute, UNL). Participants also enjoyed a delicious complimentary lunch courtesy of Sandhills & Piedmotese Beef.

Special thanks to Sandhills Global for hosting us and providing a delicious lunch in your beautiful and safe facility.
Lincoln Center Director, Dr. Tammie Fischer, organized and led the day with Don Fell from the Foundation for Teaching Economics.

Curriculum Corner
Think Like an Economist and you’ll see the world more clearly, empowering you to make better decisions at work, at home, and in your community. Leading economists Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers will take you on a joyous romp through their field as they introduce you to the big ideas in economics, and show how you can apply them to live in your own life. Their signature approach reveals that every decision is an economic decision and this podcast uncovers the economic forces that shape the world around you. Betsey and Justin believe that economics is a superpower, and they want to teach you to fly.

The economy explained. Imagine you could call up a friend and say, "Meet me at the bar and tell me what's going on with the economy." Now imagine that's actually a fun evening.

Discover the hidden side of everything with Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books. Each week, Freakonomics Radio tells you things you always thought you knew (but didn’t) and things you never thought you wanted to know (but do) — from the economics of sleep to how to become great at just about anything. Dubner speaks with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, intellectuals and entrepreneurs, and various other underachievers.
