SC Organization Helps Teachers Teach Real-World Economics

If it's one thing our business community agrees about, it's their desire to see everyone become active, successful, and prosperous members of our global economy.  Which just happens to be our next guest's mission.
 
Mike Switzer interviews Jim Morris, CEO of SC Economics, also known as the South Carolina Council on Economic Education.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
