Open Webinar

Stretch the limits of your students’ thinking beyond planet earth as we answer the question: who should pay for asteroid defense? In this fun webinar, we examine asteroid defense as a thought-provoking example of a public good. We’ll show how to use videos from Marginal Revolution University and others, podcasts such as NPR’s Planet Money, class activities, and other enriching media to teach public goods and the free-rider problem.
