Ideology rock paper scissors

Ideology Rock-Paper-Scissors

  • Directions/Rules

  • Find a partner

  • Play 3 rounds of rock-paper-scissors (1 round=best out of three shoots)

  • At the end each round, the loser must give the winner one piece of their candy

  • Odds and Ends

  • In game, candy=money and winning=hard work (therefore, the harder your work the more money you receive and vise versa)


Ideology rock paper scissors1

  • What economic ideology was enacted while playing the game? What problems may arise from this system?

  • Which economic ideology was represented as I redistributed the candy? What problems may arise from this system?

  • Why did these economic/political ideologies emerge after the Industrial Revolution (think class tensions)?
