Zoe lives with her mother who is unemployed. This smart and determined 12-year-old college girl would like to help her find a job. How to achieve this? It is the starting point that will lead Zoé to ask the right questions, thanks in particular to Mrs. Robinson, her neighbor retired economics teacher, and her friends, on all the topics that govern the current economic world: Work – Unemployment – Globalization – Banking – Technical progress – Inequalities – Parity – Pensions – Basic income – Ecology – Money – Finance – Europe – Brexit. A living story to allow children (10-15 years) to approach with clarity the major subjects of the economy.
