What is Economics On The Move (EOTM)?
Economics on the Move is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting economic and financial literacy in under-served communities by offering its youth a rigorous course that uses tours of local firms to teach principles of economics.
Dr. Daniel Barkley, the organization’s founder, developed the learning-by-touring approach from his experience teaching college economics. Professor Barkley discovered that industrial tours helped his students bridge the gap between textbook theory, real-life business, and financial operations. Touring not only broadens students’ perspectives about economics, it exposes them to job opportunities in the form of college internships or permanent professional employment after graduation.
