Econ in Unexpected Places

July 21-24 | Berry College | Rome, GA



Are you not looking forward to your economics class?
Do you picture Ferris Bueller’s teacher whenever someone mentions economics?
Do you think that economics only exists in a textbook and not in the real world?
Have you never been to a FEE seminar before?

Come to FEE’s “Econ in Unexpected Places” and learn how economics exists in a variety of places such as sports, movies, history, pop culture, and more! Economics is more than just graphs in a textbook or formulas on a computer; it’s a way of seeing the world differently than the average person. The way an average person looks at the world is like watching a 3D movie without the glasses. After a FEE seminar, you’ll have your glasses.
