Consensus among Economics Teachers from Transition Economies
Leet, Don R.; Lang, Nancy A.
Journal of Economic Education, v41 n1 p85-94 2010
The authors analyze the economic opinions of teachers and economists from the former Soviet Union who participated in economic education programs sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education under the auspices of the National Council on Economic Education from 1995-2001. They sought to determine the level of consensus on economic topics among the participants, and then analyzed their concordance with U.S. economists. They conclude that there is a significant level of consensus among the participants from the former Soviet Union, but this consensus is often at odds with the views of American economists. (Contains 2 tables.)
