Comment: I looked at this site over the period of about 15 minutes. I think that this
site would be fascinating for young people and, as an adult, I also found it
quite interesting. I think the materials raises several issues and concepts
that are important with regard to economics, particularly consumption, and
variances in geographic areas, allowing the instructor to lead into a more
intense discussion of these issues and concepts.

I was really impressed by the notion that the technology captured my age and
geographic location and referred back to it with each example to make the
examples more personal. This kind of feedback captured my attention and held my
interest. For those of us who remember better with action and visuals this
supplement to learning will greatly encourage and enhance memory and

Technical Remarks:

The material was very easy to use. Good directions were provided aside from that
which is designed to be intuitive.
