Editorial Reviews


'This volume is an excellent outcome of an American Economic Association Committee for Economic Education project aimed at advancing the teaching of economics within a liberal arts context. Dave Colander and KimMarie McGoldrick assembled a most able panel of contributors for this effort that includes dialogue on what should be taught, how it should be taught, and how that teaching and learning should be assessed and rewarded. To the editors' credit, they have not attempted to dictate policy but to stimulate debate on the topics. This volume is a must read for anyone seriously interested in the teaching of economics at the tertiary level.' - William E. Becker, Indiana University, US --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is a book that several contributors add their essays to future of the economist's role in society. But the twist is that the education of economist needs to be fixed and that will put the role of the economist in society in better light. The book is a bit dated but there are some key learnings that I took and because it's an essay collection, you never really get a consensus. I found the whole analysis of PHD programs and masters programs interesting and disturbing all the same. I guess Masters students should teach because that is the way to really get to know your subject but if I was paying that kind of money, I'd want to hear from the expert PHD's themselves. But I guess economic realities do away with that sort of education. There are several good examples of what the course study of a graduate student should be and where the emphasis needs to happen. In summary, interesting book that looks deep into the structual problems of educating our future economists.
