The Economics of Interest Rates

Students examine the role interest plays in daily spending and saving decisions. They identify interest rates for various savings plans and loans. They visit a bank Website to survey banking terms and products. Students calculate how long it would take to pay off a $2,000 loan on a credit card charging 18.5% APR and role-play as newspape columnists answering consumer questions.
