One of the issues I run into with both my AP and CP classes, is the power of the Federal Reserve and what the role of the FOMC. I show them the clip below from the movie, "Catch Me if You Can." It explains one of the roles of the Federal Reserve. It works as a fun introduction. The game found here is a fun, quick way to illustrate both struggles I have. It is fun to watch as they try and control one aspect of the economy and as they see the effects on the other aspects of the economy, their reaction to try and curb what actions they have been taking.
