Harker’s National Economics Challenge team has reached the finals! Zach Clark, Harsh Deep, Shahzeb Lakhani and Rohan Thakur will trek to New York City in June for the final stage of this year’s competition as one of the final four teams. This same team took first place in April at the California Economics Challenge. Each stage of the competition tests students’ understanding of micro- and macroeconomics as well as knowledge of current world economies. The competition started at the state level, which was followed by a national 45-question quiz. Teams that moved on to the semifinals then created a case study to determine the final four teams.
