Teachers will be able to:

  • Help students become more informed citizens,  more aware of economics of politics.
  • Help students understand what goes into predicting outcomes of elections.



It’s that time again! In this webinar, focus on policy to help determine how economics and elections intersect.


Presented by Dr. Scott Wolla and Andrea Caceres- Santamaria, both of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

How does self-interest affect voting? How can we analyze economic data to predict the outcome of presidential elections? This workshop will get you ready for the 2020 elections and help students become more informed citizens about the economics of politics — and the politics of economics. Classroom ready lessons will be presented and copies provided on unemployment, inflation, GDP, and predicting the outcome of the election.
