The challenge begins with a generous starting fund of $500,000. Your mission: transform this sum into a million dollars to secure your journey back to your own time. However, the ingenious Keynesians won't make it easy for you. They've devised a trillion maze electronic labyrinth, each path representing a different economic scenario from the past.
