Re: [Channel-talkeconomics] Workshop 6 Macro

Good morning,

This workshop was informative for me. I particularly liked the simulation that
dealt with both types of unemployment and inflation. Having the students
explain why their occupation might become unemployed by particular headlines
in the newspaper and the type of unemployment appeared to be fruitful. The
teacher went on to ask the students in their roles, how inflation might impact
them. I found this activity to be a great way to make sure the kids understand
the basics of these two topics.

When unemployment was brought up, the teacher identified the work force as any
16 year old or older who was not institutionalized as being a member of the
work force.

What does institutionalized mean?
Are high school students institutionalized?
Does it just mean prisons and psych hospitals?

Any clarification on this would be much appreciated.

What type of unemployment is it when you are horrible at your job, and you get
fired?

I look forward to your responses.

David Gavron
