Enter the Contest and Win $2,500!!!
The Hackley Endowment for the Study of Capitalism and Free Enterprise at Fayetteville State University is pleased to announce its “Economics Video Contest for 2012-2013.” Entries are due Wednesday, May 15, 2013.
Economics is so exciting that we want you to help convey the ideas in a fun way. Dr. Stringham’s college professor, Dr. Walter Block, once said that one of the problems for economists is that critics of markets have so many catchy folk songs, but economists don’t have any. Hence, this video contest about “Economic Value Is Subjective.” To read about economic value being subjective click here.
