You may have heard about the infamous clock before but have you thought about what you could learn from it. The U.S. version has many different figures to look at. Debt held from other nations, levels of income tax and the personal debt of each individual are only 3 of the 62 different ‘counts’. It is ideal when studying economics or business but you learn from it for history purposes as well. Managing the economy, taxes and loans etc. are all in the syllabus of history. Year 12 study the British government and America. The economy is key in both courses. Year 10 study Germany, Year 13 America again, Year 11 the Cold War and the USSR and various key stage 3 classes will find references to the economy. You can use the links below to look at the U.S. and U.K. clocks but perhaps you could find your own country as well.
