Resource description

GEO is an international business strtegy game. Participants are each assigned to a nation, and allowed to vote for changes in that nation’s monetary, fiscal, and trade policies. Monetary policies consist of interest rates on deposits, loans, and overdrafts; fiscal policies consist of personal and corporate tax rates, and entitlements; trade policies consist of subsidies on exports and tariffs on imports. Policies are changed automatically by the GEO program when a sufficient proportion of nationals vote for the change. GEO shows participants how an international economy functions, and how macroeconomic statistics are computed. It allows products and shares to be traded across nations; accounts for national balances and incomes; and gives unemployment rates, price indices, and trade balances.
