Overview

Economics Writing is a guide for students who want to learn effective economics writing–that is, writing that is clear, concise, and persuasive. The text collects engaging papers by professional economists, originally published in sources such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, and academic journals. It also includes papers written by undergraduate economics students, as well as resource lists identifying economics websites, blogs, research sites, books, and movies that have economics content.

Meant as a guide for both writers and readers, Economics Writing shows why economics writing is so popular and why it helps people understand the world. The wide range of essays and articles show students how to write, while the listed blogs, websites, and books and movies place economics in a contemporary cultural context. Furthermore, the introductions to the student essays explain, sometimes in the students’ own words, the challenges they faced in writing the essays and why they chose their topics. Appendices with key word lists, pages for students to write summaries, and editing checklists for writing an economics research paper, round out the book’s utility for economics undergraduates.

Features

  • Collected essays feature example papers by undergraduates, as well as articles from The New York Times, The New Yorker, and various academic journals.
  • Appendices form a handy research and editing resource for both graduate and undergraduate students writing an academic paper.
  • Enterprising readers will find short lists of websites, novels, books, and movies that have economics content.
  • Most essays apply economics to the real world and consider current economic problems; whether dealing with the Cuban embargo, child labour, queuing, species invasion, or climate change, all have economics thinking at their core, employing economic models, data sets, or equations.
