Abstract:

A 10-year high school reunion provides an chance to investigate opportunity cost, supply and demand's effect on wages, investing in human capital, and the costs and benefits of career decisions. In another segment, two workers, thinking hard about their futures, learn about incentives for investing in human capital and the economic risks involved, why people change jobs, and factors that enhance job mobility. Galloping competition in the manufacturing sector sets the stage for discussing productivity, investments in robotic technology, automation and the loss of jobs, and the role of government in training displaced workers. Correlates to National Economics Standards.
