Economists separate all economic activities into goods and services.Boom Town depicts both goods and services.Goods are things that are made. Services are jobs that people perform to help other people. A miller produces flour. A trading post sells supplies. Flour and supplies are goods. A cooper makes and repairs wooden barrels. The barrels are goods. Barrel repair, however, is a service.
  • Boom Town also shows how producers (people who provide goods and services) and consumers (people who buy goods and services) depend on each other. For instance, when miners prospect for gold, they engage in production-related activities. At other times, miners are consumers, dependent on other businesses for goods and services.
