Session Detail

Economics of the American West

Calling all High School Government, Economics, and US History teachers! Join us at the National Ranching Heritage Museum for a day of learning-Old West Style.

Important Session Information:

The history of North America’s West is replete with stories of economic success and failure. What lessons can students learn from these experiences and see the future through that lens? From the vantage point of microeconomic study students will see the principles of how scarce resources are allocated among competing ends. The economic factors of agriculture, industry, water, land, labor, capital and entrepreneurship will leverage this learning experience.

Author: Adam Martin, Texas Tech and presented by National Ranching Heritage Museum and SMU Cox School of Business (Teaching Free Enterprise)
