Teaching Students about the Financial Crisis through Best-Selling Books
Stowe, Kristin; Schwartz, Lisa A.
American Journal of Business Education, v7 n3 p219-228 2014
The 2007-2009 financial crisis was such a momentous time that entire business courses could be devoted to its study. While some schools may undertake that task, this paper discusses ways in which students may learn about the crisis as part of an established course in economics or finance departments. Popular press books are highlighted, and writing prompts and discussion questions are shared. The paper focuses on the response by two key public institutions: the Federal Reserve and the Treasury. Results from a student survey provide evidence of value from the use of such books.
