More than 50 students played an entertaining game while learning about international business, relations, and politics during the “Wealth of Nation Building” competition. According to game creator Michael Ratajczyk of the Business Department, there are many ways to build a nation and help it achieve prosperity. This year’s winning strategy was Switzerland-esque, with the student team choosing to avoid warfare and instead focus on providing the world with high-quality products. Taking first place were Brad Hauser, Jared Johnson, Mike Mezzano, and Phil Heinle. More than $500 in prizes was donated by Saint Mary’s and Winona organizations.
