The Economics of the U.S. Constitution.
Schug, Mark C., Ed.
Senior Economist, v2 n1 Fall 1986
In conjunction with the United States Constitution's Bicentennial, this issue is devoted to the contributions the Constitution has made in shaping the U.S. economic system. The main article, "The Economics of the Constitution," provides important insights on how the Constitution influences the economic system through answers to the following questions: (1) "How Did the Constitution Come to be Written as It Is?"; (2) "Whose Interests Were Served by the Document?"; (3) "What Does the Constitution Say?"; (4) "How Important Was the Constitution at the Time and Subsequently?"; and (5) "What Are the Lessons to be Learned?" Included are teaching suggestions presented by four teams of writers in the areas of economics, U.S. history, government, and world history. The suggestions contain students' goals and teaching activities. (KWL)
