The 2015 Business Classic winner is the Economic Policy Stimulator by the IE Business School in Spain. Beginning with the details of an unnamed country, this interactive exercise lets students combine various economic policies to analyse their future impact (in the following two years) on the main macroeconomic indicators. The results and feedback given to students are expressed numerically and graphically. Students also have access to the results of the combination of policies used throughout the exercise so that they can be compared. Said results can be printed for subsequent discussion.
