Great hands- on lesson    September 14, 2010

Good lesson. I have used it with candy instead, but I suppose you need to be real careful with that because of such an increase in allergies.

The link to the USA Today article does work - http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2010/07/obamas-day-trade-and-exports/1 - but the link inside the article itself to the plan to increase exports is no longer available - http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100707/ts_nm/us_usa_obama_trade_2. EconEdLink: Unfortunately because the article is part of Yahoo! we can not fix the link, but here is a different article explaining how Obama promises to double export growth by 2015. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/29/business/29trade.html
