Agenda for a Small Planet

Economics Game

A lesson in international economics with a sense of humour. Sitting around a gaming table, members of the Richard Morse Pantomime Theater act out the moves of international trade using toys, modles and specially designed playing cards. As they play, economic concepts suddenly become easier to understand and the injustices of the present system become apparent. An entirely new game is proposed. The original moves re-played but in a new spirit and with a new set of rules based on the ideas behind the New International Economic Order. At the end, the narrator stresses "that this just a game” but perhaps some lessons can be drawn from it.
