New Ideas & Materials for Educators & Students
In this booklet, we provide suggestions, content and teaching material for economics courses taught in public administration and law programs. Many of these programs teach students a few economics courses, often focused on micro and macro 101. There are, however, many useful economic concepts and realities that students are rarely taught. With this booklet, we aim to help educators and students modernise the economics courses in public administration and law programs by paying more attention to different ways of organising, values, real-world knowledge, and diverse perspectives.
