ECON 101: Principles of Microeconomics 


Case Study

After getting a PhD from Iowa State University and a Master’s from the London School of Economics, I became an economist for the US Department of Agriculture. Three years later, I returned to Iowa State in Fall 2018, this time to teach. My decision to teach Econ 101 with a new free online textbook was an easy one.

The Economy: Economics for a Changing World” was developed after the 2008 financial crisis and ensuing recession, in response to concerns that undergraduate Economics education was too disconnected from important real world issues. Besides its excellent selection and sequencing of material, the text makes full use of its digital platform with animated figures, videos, and interactive review questions.
