– How many people pay social insurance in 2051 vs today
– Which kind of problem Mongolian pension system will face in 2051.
– What is the solution for that.
then do economic calculations on google doc, sheet, slides, to find result.
After having result, we also asked for economics and statistical teachers from NUM, whether our result feasible or not?
then we entered story animation task.

All the document, data, used in story on the internet.
