I have used this simulation as a discussion topic with my online students where they play the game for a number of times and record their terms, inflation rate, unemployment and how they find the data reflecting on their popularity votes. Students enjoy it tremendously and become more aware of how difficult it is to run the economy at a national level while seeing before their very eyes how all the variables/concepts interact with each other

Technical Remarks:

Must ensure that the Plug-in is installed to use it. Plug-in is available at the simulation website.
