Economics – Theory Through Applications
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
3.5 stars

This textbook, Economics: Theory Through Applications, centers around student needs and expectations through two premises: … Students are motivated to study economics if they see that it relates to their own lives. … Students learn best from an inductive approach, in which they are first confronted with a problem, and then led through the process of solving that problem.

Many books claim to present economics in a way that is digestible for students; Russell and Andrew have truly created one from scratch. This textbook will assist you in increasing students’ economic literacy both by developing their aptitude for economic thinking and by presenting key insights about economics that every educated individual should know.

Understanding economics, what some people call "economic literacy," is becoming essential for citizens in our national and increasingly interconnected world economy. Increasingly, productive members of society must be able to identify, analyze, and evaluate the causes and consequences of individual economic decisions and public policy including issues raised by constraints imposed by scarcity, how economies and markets work, and the benefits and costs of economic interaction and interdependence. Such literacy includes analysis, reasoning, problem solving, and decision making that helps people function as consumers, producers, savers, investors, and responsible citizens. - From the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations

Intermediate Macroeconomics
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

In this course, the student will build on and apply what you learned in the introductory macroeconomics course. The student will use the concepts of output, unemployment, inflation, consumption, and investment to study the dynamics of an economy at a more advanced level. As the course progresses, the student will gain a better appreciation for how policy shifts and changes in one sector impact the rest of the macroeconomy (whether the impacts are intended or unintended). The student will also examine the causes of inflation and depression, and discuss various approaches to responding to them. By the end of this course, the student should be able to think critically about the economy and develop your own unique perspective on various issues. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to: Explain the standard theory in macroeconomics at an intermediate level; Explain and use the basic tools of macroeconomic theory, and apply them to help address problems in public policy; Analyze the role of government in allocating scarce resources; Explain how inflation affects entire economic systems; Synthesize the impact of employment and unemployment in a free market economy; Build macroeconomic models to describe changes over time in monetary and fiscal policy; Compare and contrast arguments concerning business, consumers and government, and make good conjectures regarding the possible solutions; Analyze the methods of computing and explaining how much is produced in an economy; Apply basic tools that are used in many fields of economics, including uncertainty, capital and investment, and economic growth.

Intermediate Microeconomics with Microsoft Excel
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

This book is based on the idea that there is a particular framework used by economists to interpret observed reality. This framework has been called the economic way of thinking, the economic approach, and the method of economics.

This book is different from the many other books that attempt to teach microeconomics in three ways:
• It explicitly applies the recipe of the economic approach in every example.
• It uses concrete examples via Microsoft Excel in every application, which enables the reader to manipulate live graphs and learn numerical methods of optimization.
• The majority of the content is in the Excel workbooks which the reader uses to create meaning.

You learn by doing, not by reading.

0.0 stars

O kit didático ViVa - Vivendo nas Várzeas do Alto Solimões está organizado sob a forma de sequência didática e tem como objetivo facilitar a aprendizagem reflexiva e crítica dos discentes no que tange ao cotidiano de agricultores familiares, que vivem em ambientes de várzea. O material baseia-se nas concepções epistemológicas e pedagógicas defendidas por Edgar Morin e Paulo Freire, que primam pela contextualização do conhecimento, logo esse material didático foi construído a partir do cotidiano dos agroecossistemas familiares de várzea do Alto Solimões. No entanto, o mesmo pode ser utilizado por professores de outras regiões que desejam construir com seus discentes novos saberes, ou como modelo de replicação teórica-metodológica para confecção de novos materiais, contextualizados às características de cada lugar. O kit didático ViVa é composto por: a) Este Guia de Orientações ao professor; b) Uma Cartilha; c) Um Jogo de Tabuleiro com instruções; e d) Um CD com os itens acima disponíveis em mídia. O kit didático foi formulado para se trabalhar a temática “Gestão de Agroecossistemas Familiares” em sala de aula, no entanto, por ser a Agricultura Familiar um tema transversal, o kit pode ser trabalhado de forma inter e transdisciplinar por professores de distintas áreas de formação. A cartilha apresenta em seu arcabouço conteúdos, como: Agroecossistemas Familiares; Várzeas; Pulso das Águas/Ciclo Hidrológico; Cultivos Agrícolas; Extrativismo Vegetal; Extrativismo Animal; Criação Animal; Instrumentos, Organização, Processos e Estratégias de Trabalho; Unidades de medida locais; Comercialização Agrícola; e Conservação. A cartilha faz uso de ilustrações pertinentes aos conteúdos abordados, que foram feitas a partir de fotografias dos agroecossistemas, permitindo uma aproximação maior entre teoria e prática. Quanto ao jogo didático, ele apresenta em seu tabuleiro as cinco principais atividades agrícolas realizadas nos agroecossistemas de várzea do Alto Solimões, bem como a influência do pulso das águas ou ciclo hidrológico na dinâmica de trabalho dos agricultores familiares. Além disso, o jogo também estabelece a possibilidade de eventos bons ou ruins aos jogadores, correlacionando esses eventos aos que acontecem nos agroecossistemas de várzea.

Political Economy

Political Economists are concerned with the allocation of scarce resources in a world of infinite wants and needs. In order to allocate these resources, politics are used within a state to provide for the people. Political economy is the study of the relationships between individuals and society, and more specifically, the relationships between citizens and states.

Political economy is a study of philosophy and ideology that studies the evolution of political and economic ideas. Political economy is a mixture of politics, economics, sociology, philosophy, and history, which all bring together evidence to the study of how humans exist within societies. Political economists study political ideology, economic structure, human interaction, human nature, and theories in philosophical thought. It is a study that studies not only the mechanics of a particular structure, but also the reasoning behind why a structure is regarded to be the best by various people with different beliefs.

The study of political economics can be split into two different sections, one which is Classical Political Economy and the other which is Modern Political Economy. The classical branch studies range from the conservative philosophers such as Machiavelli to liberals such as Adam Smith to the critiquers of liberalism such as Marx. The modern branch studies range from social liberals such as Keynes to modern political economists whose works deal with a multitude of issues including foreign trade and globalization.
