  1. Economics of Entrepreneurship Review by Cindy Felso
    Pros: Free-market perspective, well designed instruction, learning resources and activities

    The Economics of Entrepreneurship Course is a breath of fresh air among the available options for middle school or high school level economics education. As a homeschooling parent, with an economics degree and a passion for free market economics, it has been hard to find instructional materials that teach economics in a way that encourages free market thinking. This course does just that. It is taught from the perspective of Austrian economics in the tradition of Mises and Rothbard so that the core principles are solid. In addition, it takes advantage of an abundance of audio and visual resources available in order to make the principles and concepts come alive for students. Through well designed lessons that incorporate the resources above, along with activities that further bring home the concepts, students are introduced to free market economics in a way that will help them become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

  2. Economics of Entrepreneurship Review by Daniel Cochrane

    The Foundation for Economic Education has done an outstanding job constructing an introductory economics course which combines the fundamental principles of free markets with the practical application of economic concepts to everyday living. For home school students, FEE’s course offers both flexibility and breadth unsurpassed by typical high school economics classes. Students substantially benefit from this course by learning the importance of economics in society, while also exploring how they can individually apply the principles and ideas learned in the classroom to real life situations. For home educators, “Economics of Entrepreneurship” is simple to teach and can be easily integrated into an existing curriculum, or can be taught as a separate class. The course was designed with home school students in mind and possesses a high degree of flexibility.
