You know you're an economist when...



... you are at Sea World and when you see all the strollers 'parked' outside Shamu Stadium, your first thought is, "This would make a great example of product differentiation!"















Tutor2U has some more pictures that could be used to show economic concepts, with this description of a cool assignment for your students:
My first assignment for my AS Economics group this week is to get their smartphones or tablets out and in pairs find some time to explore our locality to shoot examples of economics around them. They then select six of their favourite images and turn them into a Prezi or a PowerPoint and explain to the group why their images raise interesting economics questions.

  1. That's a great assignment (at least for people who come into a class knowing enough economics to do it).
