Tired of playing a virtual orc, shaman or infantry team leader?
How about stepping into the polished wingtips of Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke?
You can, sort of. The Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco has posted Fed Chairman, an online game which challenges players to keep both unemployment and inflation in check by tinkering with the federal funds rate.
Okay, so Call of Duty 4 it’s not. Still, it’s a short, interesting lesson on the relationship between the Fed and the economy at large.
UPDATE: The game seems to be down at the moment…
