I have chosen to write about how the video games industry have impacted the American economy. I have chosen this topic as I have a strong interest in macroeconomics and I believe that the video game industry has a part to play in its growth. I have observed this as when I go back home to the US I normally see an increasing number of video game stores. So far in this process I have developed my self management skills as throughout the majority of this process you work alone, and there are deadlines that need to be met so you are required to stay on task and focused in order to not fall behind. I have also had to develop my resilience skills throughout this process as I needed to find in full specifically focused on this industry in the USA.
