Over the past year or so I’ve been providing some techincal advice and input to the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) producers of a new video based on Economist Leanard Read’s essay, I, Pencil. I was in Washington D.C. a couple weeks back and met with them though unfortunately I missed thier launch party for the video presentation. I’ve written about that essay before here.
The CEI has put together a nice website ipencilmovie.org that includes the movie and a supporting curriculum and many other resource links. So it’s a great new resource for teachers wishing to give thier students a good introduction to some of the key economic concepts behind Read’s essay.
