Allgood, Sam; McGoldrick, KimMarie – Journal of Economic Education, 2023
Past survey evidence shows little change in how economists teach, but the pandemic forced change upon faculty. This survey investigates what that change looked like, whether faculty feel that the changes were for the better or worse for themselves and their students, and what changes faculty will continue post-pandemic.

The authors of this article propose a simple exercise of monopoly pricing to illustrate complex theoretical results on the welfare effects of group pricing. By exposing students to this exercise, they aim to bridge a gap between the standard textbook analysis of group pricing and more general results in the literature and clarify some students'…
