Economics is all about decision-making. Why do people choose what they do? People generally think it is all about money, but it is so much more than that. Economics is broadly applicable in the exploration of people, choices and incentives. The magic of understanding economics is it helps you see the hidden side of everything – seeing the unseen. It’s a superpower!
The mission of the Nebraska Council on Economic Education is to act as a catalyst and lead a statewide initiative to advance economic and financial literacy.
We believe that students should develop economic ways of thinking and problem solving that they can use in their lives as consumers, savers, investors, members of the workforce, responsible citizens and effective participants in the state, national, and global economy.
To ensure that all students from kindergarten through high school have an ongoing education and programs in economics and personal finance. Further, we work to enhance teachers’ understanding of the subject matter and their ability to teach economics and personal finance concepts.
