What the students say…
I now understand the problems that companies and cities face when it comes to new development projects like these….There is always something you could add to make your project better, but for every one of those, there is also a tradeoff and you need to decide what is more important. UrbanPlan really tied everything pertaining to Economics together. It incorporated everthing from supply and demand to opportunity costs to profit.

What the teachers say…
Developing student capacities for critical thinking and dispassionate analysis of complex issues makes them more effective, informed and demagogue-proof participants in civil society – whether they are addressing UrbanPlan’s land use challenges or health care or immigration issues. UrbanPlan is the most powerful and engaging vehicle I have found to accomplish this objective.
