Sorry to be fixated on the fiscal cliff, but I have not gone over it with one of my classes and am looking for a really nice video to start our discussion. I think I found it above and here. My students will have to answer the following:
- What is a debt ceiling
- What happened in the summer of 2011 and two results of it
- What are three things that will happen in Jan 2013 if nothing helps to solve the "fiscal cliff?"
- What are three impacts of the fiscal cliff on our economy?
