Economics is the study of choices, and playing “Oregon Trail” is all about choices. Join us to learn core economic concepts from “Oregon Trail,” and examine the decisions within the game through the lens of microeconomics. Sometimes the ‘dismal science’ is the best way to avoid dysentery.
About the Speaker:Eric Schuck teaches economics and environmental studies at
Linfield College. His research focuses on water use during droughts,
controlling agricultural runoff and irrigation technology. He is the recipient
of two Fulbright fellowships, in the Middle East and Africa, to teach or
develop curriculum about water resource management. He has also focused on the
economics of surface water pricing and wells, and consumer spending and
behavior at a regional farmers’ market.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
