Storyboard Text

  • Sobek had a quiz about Athens and Spartan's Economic System.
  • Sobek knew his father built time machines, so he ran to his job and used it to go back in Ancient Greek times.
  • Sobek asked, "What kind of economic system does Athens use?" Pericles, responded saying we have, well what you future people will call it a Market Economy. Everything is run by the people. Everyone is free before the law. People have the choice of what they want to buy and trade. That's why we created coined money."
  • Sobek saw Pericles from Athens and asked him multiple questions.
  • Sobek then asked one last question before leaving to Sparta. He asked " Why did you choose a republic government and a market economy?"
  • Pericles said "He feels as though people should handle their own things privately but once there are public affairs it should be handled by the government."
  • The boy's name was Ikaika. Ikaika said "When I was 7 years old the Spartan government made me join the army now this is my life. I have no freedom at all, everything is for the nation, none is for me."
  • Sobek arrived in Sparta. He saw a young man, about his age, wearing armor. Sobek asked him "What are you doing with that armor on?
  • The boy asked Sobek if he wanted to go on a tour. Sobek accepted.
  • Sobek asked "What kind of economic system does Sparta use?" Ikaika said "we would call this a command economy. As I said I don"t have any freedom."
  • Sobek asked "Can you buy anything?". Ikaika responded, "I mean yes but it's hard because my lifestyle is run by the government so I don"t have time."
  • Sobek gave Ikaika a hi-five then left to go back home. Sobek got a 100% on his quiz.
