National curriculum: Economist John Adams calls for chess to be taught in Australian schools
May 03, 2015
Could a humble board game improve school performance, play a role in driving Australia's economy and even help prisoners in rehab?

Mr Adams has previously worked as an economics advisor to Liberal Senator Arthur Sinodinos.
