New Developments in Economic Education

Edited by Franklin G. Mixon and Richard J. Cebula

This innovative book offers targeted strategies for effectively and efficiently teaching economics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. It provides professors and other teachers of economics various techniques to engage and retain the interest of students, and challenges them to apply both knowledge and methodological tools to a range of economic problems.

Chapter 10: Beyond the can opener: a top ten list of economics humor

Yoram Bauman

Subjects: economics and finance, teaching economics, education, economics of education, teaching and learning


The chapter provides examples of economics humor that come directly from published economic literature, and that could perhaps be integrated into upper-level undergraduate course discussions, or included, as an occasional break from traditional texts and articles, on reading lists in graduate courses. These examples, which come from some of the top economics humor contributions to the literature, are accompanied by background information that in some cases arose from communications with the author, and so have not previously appeared in print.
