The Virtual Empowerment Center

The Virtual Empowerment Center, Web site review by Sara Buckwitz,
Goof off, play a WTO video game and learn about globalization all on the same site. The Shockwave games and quizzes challenge you to figure out how to deal with the complexity of the global market. In Global Arcade’s The Game of the WTO, you must figure out how to balance the desires of Supergoat Inc. to sell genetically engineered goats in your country, your citizens’ concerns about the safety of the goat meat, and the implications of your decisions on global trade. Global Arcade encourages you to “explore the site to find out more about globalization and what is happening to people around the world.”
