Comments & reviews
Quality Mark assessors comments: 

This game is an interesting and inventive way of developing pupils' awareness of the effect of financial decisions, made by themselves and others, on the global economy.  Ethica is a well thought out and stimulating role play/board game that will challenge students to consider the tension between profit and social and environmental responsibility and how they can do the right thing with their money. In its complexity it will stretch older able students.
