ACRE Experts To Speak At REAL Econ for All Conference

By Caleb Taylor

How do poor countries become rich countries? What can we learn about economics by thinking in terms of time instead of money?

Answers to these questions and more will be the topics of presentations by ACRE experts at the REAL Econ for All Conference hosted by Economics Arkansas on July 18th and 19th at Pinnacle View Middle School in Little Rock.

The conference offers Arkansas pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade teachers the opportunity to earn professional development hours and explore curriculum ideas while hearing from a wide variety of experts from business, government and academia on economics and personal finance topics.

ACRE Scholar and UCA Assistant Professor of Economics Jeremy  Horpedahl will be presenting from 1:15 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. on July 18th about “Money, Time and Happiness: How Economists Measure the World.”

ACRE Policy Analyst Mavuto Kalulu and ACRE Program Coordinator Terra Aquia will present from 1:15 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. on July 19th about “How do Poor Countries Become Rich Countries?”

Aquia will be present both days of the conference to meet with teachers, offer resources for classes, and answer questions about opportunities to do more with ACRE.

Economics Arkansas is a non-profit organization founded in 1962 to promote economic literacy in Arkansas.
