Edited by David Colander, Christian A. Johnson Distinguished Professor of Economics, Middlebury College, US and KimMarie McGoldrick, Professor of Economics, University of Richmond, USReview:
'The volume, full of thoughtful ideas by academic economists and administrators, is the outgrowth of a 2006 Teagle Foundation grant to help enrich undergraduate education... I recommend that this book be shared among colleagues in undergraduate liberal arts colleges with economics majors to initiate or further discussions on the appropriate goals and objectives of the major vis-a-vis liberal education. Doctoral and Master's comprehensive universities with undergraduate economics majors and accredited business schools would still find the discussions in Educating Economists useful in thinking creatively about appropriate undergraduate and graduate economics skills and content, especially to train future undergraduate professors.' -- Deborah M. Figart, Eastern Economic Journal '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, Bloomington, US
