For the economic fundamentals course, GCE students visited the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. We are currently investigating where U.S currency comes from. Also, we want to understand why does money have value. Students were asked three of the following questions:

1, Why was the invention of paper-like money so important?
2. What are some of the ways our lives would be different if we had a barter system today?
3. Would you favor the U.S. copying any ideas from other countries for use on our currency?

Please check out GCE student portfolios below to see their responses.
