Movie for high school economics?Submitted by farmer on Wed, 11/14/2012 - 14:50
I've been leading an economics discussion course for high school students. We've mostly watched short videos on various topics, and it has gone reasonably well. For the last meeting, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, we're thinking to have a full length movie.
Do you have any suggestions?
Note: The Matrix has been pretty much ruled out due to language, though I did show the red pill/blue pill scene and discussed how we are born into a deceptive life which feeds our senses and uses our lives as batteries. Beyond that, I'm not sure there is much to be gained, from an economic perspective, anyway.
What would be great is to have something entertaining with a fairly significant (and reasonable) economic theme.
My other obvious choice, Ghandi, was ruled out due to the length of the film. Something like that, except shorter, would be great.
Thanks in advance for your help.
