The Adventure web site explores the many facets of economic growth with stories, fun facts, a timeline, and a variety of activities. Everything is drawn from New England's history, which is particularly well suited to illustrate how growth occurs. Why is the "growth" lesson important? Understanding how the economy grows gives us perspective for making sound personal decisions, not only about saving, spending, and investing, but also about things like education, housing, and jobs. And these decisions shape our lives and impact our well-being, both as individuals and collectively as participants in the local, national, and global economies.
So, come invest yourself in history and let the adventure begin!
