As part of our schools enrichment program, I'd like to do an intro to global politics and economics for 12-16 year old students. As a culminating activity, I'd like to run a few different simulations to give the students a chance to put their new knowledge to work. More snowflake specifics inside. [more inside]

My understanding of economic history is rather poor. I couldn't even substantiate my primitive views of how the industrial first world's economy is structured, much less hold any views of how the economics of past communities were structured. So it's rather obvious that I would want to remedy this. [more inside]

I'm looking for econometric analysis of the Australian housing market and the medium-term risk of a crash in prices. I'm particularly interested in information about Canberra house prices. Something like Calculated Risk, with lots of data and layman-level explanations of its probable import, would be perfect.

I'm a US citizen, while my wife is from Canada, and is in the US on a K3 visa while we work on getting her Green Card. The downside of this is that until she gets either that Green Card or a work permit, she can't be employed in the US.
I filed my taxes as "Married Filing Jointly," and was informed that because she has an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, rather than a Social Security Number, I would not be getting my "Economic Stimulus (Bush Bribe)" check. Does anyone understand the rationale here? Why does her status preclude my receiving my payment?
