Are you teaching unemployment types soon? I start my lecture on unemployment today. Teaching types of unemployment can get dry and, at times, feels like you are searching for stories to match the definitions of frictional, structural or cyclical unemployment. I applaud you for trying to bring economics to life. If you are looking for another resources, here is one I am starting class with.
Students from Macroeconomics in the Spring 2016 semester at Northern Kentucky University did a great job with this Econ Beats assignment that highlights the differences between the types of unemployment. A remake of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” with an econ twist.
Enjoy and please share your thoughts. Do you have a song recommendation?
