McCloskey, Deirdre Nansen – Journal of Economic Education, 2022

Mankiw, N. Gregory – Journal of Economic Education, 2022
The author has long thought that the role of instructors in the introductory economics classroom is to serve as ambassadors for the economic profession. They are there not to present their own views of economics. They should, instead, transcend their idiosyncrasies and represent the broad consensus of professional economists. The job of the…

The author…
