CEE: COVID Isolation Abroad: Economic Lessons from Barbados

  • January 18, 2022
  • 5:00 PM

Economics teachers often use the analogy of being stranded on an island to drive home the concepts of scarcity and opportunity cost. But what happens when the Econ teacher ACTUALLY gets stranded on an island in COVID isolation? In this webinar, Amanda Stiglbauer will detail what it’s like to be in isolation for 14 days on the island of Barbados, and the economic lessons learned from an island country that just gained its status as a republic. Ripe with pictures and jaw-dropping anecdotes, Amanda will detail her new outlook on scarcity, opportunity cost, public vs private goods, and navigating a market during the Omicron outbreak.

Teachers will be able to:

  • In this webinar, teachers will be able to: -describe COVID isolation and quarantine policies in different countries.
  • Evaluate the economic impact of being isolated in a foreign country due to COVID 19.
