Client Reviews

My son Jason loved the Trading Away course! He's always been interested in economics, and this course gave him a handson understanding of the concepts of trade and its various forms. The activities were engaging and informative, and he especially enjoyed the Trading Game. I highly recommend this course to any student interested in economics and global trade. Amanda W.
