Recensies en Artikelen

"This book fills an important gap, offering an exciting look into the heterogeneity required to understand real-world economics."
Arjen van Witteloostuijn, Dean of the School of Business and Economics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

"To tackle the systemic challenges that the world faces today, we need economists with an open-mindset and a diverse toolkit to help guide us. This book provides the building blocks for educating these crucial experts."
Jan Peter Balkenende, former prime minister of the Netherlands

“A tremendous resource for both teachers and students of economics.”
Prof. Wendy Carlin (UCL), director of the CORE Economics Education Project

“Based on a thorough analysis, the authors argue for a radical rethink of how economics is taught. Whether you agree or disagree with some of the specific suggestions, this book is definitely worth reading.”
Claudio Borio, Head of Monetary and Economic Department at the BIS

"This book is a tour de force. The mastery of the subject that the authors and their team display is astonishing. It was a source of inspiration for the development of the new program at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam."

Economy Studies

A Guide to Rethinking Economics Education

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
The Economy Studies project emerged from the worldwide movement to modernise economics education, spurred on by the global financial crisis of 2008, the climate crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic. It envisions a wide variety of economics graduates and specialists, equipped with a broad toolkit, enabling them to collectively understand and help tackle the issues the world faces today.

This is a practical guide for (re-)designing economics courses and programs. Based on a clear conceptual framework and ten flexible building blocks, this handbook offers refreshing ideas and practical suggestions to stimulate student engagement and critical thinking across a wide range of courses.

Key features
  • Adapting Existing Courses: Plug-and-play suggestions to improve existing economics courses with attention to institutions, history, values and practical skills.
  • Teaching materials: A guide through the rapidly growing range of innovative textbooks and other teaching materials.
  • Example Courses and Curricula: How to design pluralist, real-world economics education within the practical limits of time and resources.

The companion website, www.economystudies.com, contains a wealth of additional resources, such as tailor-made booklets for more specific audiences, additional teaching materials and links to plug-and-play syllabi and courses, and opportunities for workshops and exchange with other economics educators.
