The Boston International Economic Summit
The purpose of the Summit Program is to prepare students to live, work and thrive in our rapidly changing world. It is a semester-long activity that culminates in a final simulation of the global economy: an International Economic Summit. Student teams represent countries from around the world and use skills acquired in the classroom to negotiate trade alliances, develop economic policies, and debate real world issues.
The 2011 summit will be held on Wednesday, December 14th at Patriot Place in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Participating in this year’s trade simulation will be teams from three New England states: Connecticut, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. This is the third International Economic Summit that the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in collaboration with the Massachusetts Council on Economic Education has held in the region. We expect approximately 100 teams or around 500 students to participate in this year’s Summit.
