Caviglia-Harris, Jill – Journal of Economic Education, 2020
Economists largely agree that writing is fundamental to understanding and communicating economics and can serve as an effective way to teach students to "think like economists."

Hellmich, Simon Niklas – Citizenship, Social and Economics Education, 2020
A considerable number of empirical studies argue that economics experts differ from other groups with respect to their public policy preferences and their behavior in certain social dilemmas. Economists are more likely to regard allocation via markets as "fair" than other people and they seem to adjust their behavior and expectations to…

Fogg, Neeta P.; Harrington, Paul E. – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2020

Schmidt, Stephen – Journal of Economic Education, 2017
Introductory textbooks teach a simple normative story about the importance of maximizing economic surplus that supports common policy claims.

Difficulties with the claim that society should maximize surplus are generally…

Belfield, Clive R.; Brooks Bowden, A. – Educational Researcher, 2019
Cost, cost-effectiveness, and benefit-cost analysis are methods used by economists to evaluate public policies. Essentially, these methods rely on impact evaluations, that is, research studies of efficacy and effectiveness. However, in most research in education, these cost and impact evaluations are performed separately. This separation creates…

Allgood, Sam; Hoyt, Gail; McGoldrick, KimMarie – Journal of Economic Education, 2018
Past studies suggest that a majority of economics graduate students engage in teaching-related activities during graduate school and many go on to academic positions afterwards. However, not all graduate students are formally prepared to teach while in graduate school nor are they fully prepared to teach in their first academic position. The…

Craven, Lacey – Creighton Journal of Interdisciplinary Leadership, 2019
In "Rules for a Flat World," Hadfield focuses on law as created by and comprised of primarily centralized legal institutions. Current insights into law, however, highlight a complexity behind the social movements that cause disruption and lead to real legal change, which creates a new, broader definition of law. Taking Hadfield's view…

Swann, G. M. Peter – Journal of Economic Education, 2019
Many empirical economists say that the teaching of econometrics is unbalanced, and students are not well-prepared for the serious problems they will encounter with real data. Here, the author considers the problem of noisy data, which is present in most econometric studies, but receives far too little attention. Most econometric studies are done…
