Valentine’s Day is coming up so here’s a reminder to get your loved one a present! Valentine’s is also a great time to teach your students about globalization, the signaling and incentive role of prices, and the power of the price system–all key aspects of Chapter 7 in our textbook Modern Principles of Economics. We have two superb videos to encourage understanding and discussion of the price system, I, Rose and A Price is a Signal Wrapped up in an Incentive (see below).
In addition, we have created a lesson plan with discussion prompts, exercises, practice questions, and pre- and post-class assignments.

You can find all of this material in one convenient location here. Enjoy!
