Development economics game

So, you’ve taken a development class or maybe read a book or two about poverty; do you think you’ve got what it takes to be a development economist?

Filled with pitfalls like droughts and central bank collapse, www.3rdworldfarmer.com is a very interesting simulation that allows you to “experience” some of the development challenges facing the global south without actually putting the livelihoods of others at risk (click here for a satirical video about volun-tourism). Happy gaming!
