This lesson plan includes a link to an article for students to read. The purpose of the plan is for students 1) to investigate economic goals such as the goals of increased living standards and increases in jobs; 2) to analyze the opportunity cost principle behind job creation; and 3) to engage in a simulation about finding jobs, and experience the ?invisible hand ?in action as it allocates labor where it is most desired.
