Here in Chicago i have been able to partake in one of my passions- ECONOMICS- by attending the annual National Financial Literacy and Economics Education Conference. Sounds boring to some of you ( I know), but not to me. The conference broadens your knowledge and resource base and allows you to mingle and meet like minded educators from Universities and schools (K-12) all over the USA. I was part of a small international group representing the Ukraine, South Africa, Japan, Korea and a few other countries. I have lots of new ideas to think about, the one i most liked was the idea of integrating Art into Economics. Perhaps this stems from seeing so many famous artworks during our travels. I didn't get to meet Mr Obama (disappointed that he wasn't our Keynote speaker), but i did pay my respects to Milton Friedman! Long live Economics!
