Economics in 31 Hours


ECONOMICS IN 31 HOURS – a textbook for the new generation

Teaching of economic literacy as a separate subject is compulsory for 9-10th grade school pupils in Lithuania. It is aimed at enhancing the understanding of economics as a part of daily life rather than a discipline which has nothing to do with the reality. Therefore, in 2012 the Lithuanian Free Market Institute (LFMI) started its most ambitious educational project Economics in 31 Hours with the aim to publish a new generation textbook for Lithuanian pupils and to design and develop interactive methodical material for teachers of economics.





 »In March 2017 textbook Economics in 31 Hours has won London Book Fair The Educational  Learning Resources Award. This international Award is given for innovation, academic performance and practical application. This is the first time when Lithuania was awarded in this   prestigious Awards.




»In November 2016 Economics in 31 Hours – received a prestigious $100,000 Templeton Freedom Award. Awarded by Atlas Network and generously supported by the Templeton Religion Trust, the Templeton Freedom Award recognizes the most exceptional and innovative contributions to the understanding of free enterprise, and the public policies that encourage prosperity, innovation and human fulfillment via free competition.



»In May 2016 LFMI’s Teacher’s Manual has won 2016 LOGIN People‘s Choice Award for the best online educational tool from the annual gathering of Lithuania’s Internet culture that celebrates the greatest and most innovative achievements of the Lithuanian tech community.
