This project focuses on economic indicators and their use as measures of an economy’s strength. After conducting research on two different assigned countries’ economies, student teams analyze their findings, identify trends in each country’s economic indicators, and make predictions about the different economies. Then, each team determines the strength of the economies and identifies the country that would be most suitable for a local business owner who wants to expand her/his business operations. Each team develops charts and tables that contain its research findings, writes a short report of its recommendation, and gives an oral presentation for the local business owner in which the team explains its recommendation. Students also work individually to gather and analyze news articles about each assigned country.
