McCloskey, Deirdre Nansen – Journal of Economic Education, 2022
In Rortyan fashion, John and David (Siegfried and Colander 2022, 71-84) declare that the critical thinker will "try to learn from others rather than argue with others in order to dominate them." It amounts to saying that critical thinking is more a matter of character than of method, more a matter of ethics than of technique. John and…

Darity, William – Journal of Economic Education, 2022
Dominion of the scarcity principle as the basis for economic analysis is virtually absolute in teaching the introductory course in economics. This supremacy is neither valid nor desirable. Two compelling alternative foundational concepts for economics are "uncertainty" and "inequality." These alternatives lead to vastly…

Ihrig, Jane; Wolla, Scott – Journal of Economic Education, 2022
The topic of the Federal Reserve's (the Fed's) implementation of monetary policy has a significant presence in economics textbooks. Unfortunately, as the Fed purposefully shifted the way it implements monetary policy to an environment with ample reserves in the banking system, many textbooks have not kept up. The authors walk through the key…

Most courses are taught almost exclusively using lecture and, despite gaps in textbook coverage of empirical economics, do not incorporate academic readings. The authors of this article present a "jigsaw literature review" cooperative learning activity to address these shortfalls. The jigsaw guides students through formulating a position…

Stock, Wendy A. – Journal of Economic Education, 2021
What do we know about how well graduate teaching in economics addresses cognitive challenges to learning? In short, very little. There is a dearth of research that investigates how graduate student, program and professor characteristics, and choices impact graduate student learning and other outcomes. Some of the broader literature on graduate…

St. Clair, Priscilla Cooke; Hunnicutt, Lynn; Travis, Karen – Journal of Economic Education, 2020
It is challenging for economics major programs to support an undergraduate research capstone where the goal is for all majors to complete a research project that creates new knowledge. Our program has found a way to achieve this for all of our majors in the face of resource constraints and varying student skill levels, and has done this without…

Dalton, John T.; Logan, Andrew J. – Journal of Economic Education, 2020
Film and video clips have been used in the classroom to bring economic concepts to life. The authors use the 2015 film "Joy" to animate Joseph Schumpeter's "The Theory of Economic Development," a foundational text on the theory of innovation and entrepreneurship that remains relevant for students today. They outline…
