Economis ( is a web-based software application developed by Central Ohio Youth for Christ. Economis creates a virtual token economy/system for the purpose of teaching students basic concepts of economics, with a special emphasis on money management skills. Students gain experience in using a credit/debit card, earning, spending, using online banking, and learning about taxes and payroll. This experience takes place in a virtual world so that mistakes and problems can be instructive without the consequences of the real world. In addition, Economis creates a powerful behavior modification tool through incentives that can be used to further the goals of developing urban youth.
