Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A good way to start might be to provide a toy model of a largely self sufficient economy with its own currency. Then you can show all of the things that won't work if you don't have control of your own money supply and if those who do are not giving you what you need. Then you can show the problems that result when you stop manufacturing most of your own consumer goods. etc. etc.
