Become President of your own Country

Now's your chance to run your own country!

You make all the decisions - increase taxes or interest rates; invite overseas businesses to run your health service; invest in the railways - it's entirely up to you!

All you have to do is visit www.simcountry.com - the latest episode in the always popular sim series. And it's entirely for free! This is the most sophisticated economic model - much more detailed than the one used by the Chancellor's office for example - that I've ever come across and yet it's being promoted as a game for teenagers!!

Give it a try and learn the hard way what can go wrong when you are el Presidente!

If you enjoy simulations, the American Foundation for Teaching Economics also offers a wide range of examples. You can see their materials here:
