Link to Online Textbook – Economics (Mr. Stewart)

While most of the material I will be teaching you is grounded in documents of my own creation, I have included this link to an online economics textbook in case you want to do some extra reading to help reinforce your understanding.

I will let you know what parts of the online textbook correspond to what we are doing in class in order to facilitate your search for useful supporting material.

At this moment in the story, Thorin has regained his treasure in the Lonely Mountain, and Smaug the dragon is dead. But, it was Bard, a man from Laketown, that felled the dragon. Bard is from a line of men that was attacked by Smaug and part of Thorin’s treasure “rightfully” belongs to him. Or does it?
