Hawaiian Economics: Barter for Fish & Poi

Students examine the natural resources of Hawaii. They describe the relationship between limited resources and the need for a system to distribute them. Using the Ahupua'a barter system as an example, they examine the processes of barter and why it is no longer practiced. They explain the relationship between specialization of labor and productivity.
