Clark, J. R.; Bogan, Elizabeth C.
Social Studies, v73 n6 p256-62 Nov-Dec 1982
Research in secondary economics education since 1966 shows an increased emphasis on international trade and finance, decreased emphasis on labor and industrial relations, and low priority given to concepts of opportunity cost and scarcity. Findings from three surveys of economics education, made in 1966, 1975, and 1981, are compared. (AM)
