The Erie Canal
The impact of the Erie Canal is the subject of this six minute video. This video explains how and why it was built. It would be an asset to have the students with a map of the area as well as how it opened the "west" at that time.

The Mises Week in Review: October 10, 2015

International trade grabbed headlines this week with Monday’s announcement that twelve governments have reached agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. While it should be of no surprise to see the news celebrated in the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal or the Council of Foreign Relations blog, it is unfortunate even libertarian organizations are praising the agreement.

What’s Behind Microsoft’s $8.5 Billion Takeover of Skype?
Rumors that Facebook or Cisco would buy Skype were proven wrong on Tuesday when Microsoft struck an $8.5 billion deal to acquire the online voice and video chat service. Most analysts welcomed the takeover as a shrewd move on the grounds that it positions Microsoft in a commanding position in the emerging markets of video content and online telephony.
