I, Pencil – The Movie
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.
We’ve agreed to do some cross links from our Story of Pencils pages over at at Studio602 on Pencils.com, to help build awareness of this new learning resource.
