Summary

Reviewers tell us that Case/Fair/Oster is one of the all-time bestselling POE texts because they trust it to be clear, thorough and complete. Case/Fair/Oster readers also come away with a basic understanding of how market economies function, an appreciation for the things they do well, and a sense of things they do poorly. Readers begin to learn the art and science of economic thinking and begin to look at some policy and even personal decisions in a different way.

the Journal of Economic Perspectives and the Journal of Economic Education, and he was a member

of the AEA’s Committee on Economic Education.

duty in the Army, and received his Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University in 1976.

and Property Taxation: The Need for Reform, and he has published numerous articles in professional

journals.

numerous professional articles, many of which attempt to isolate the causes and consequences of

boom and bust cycles and their relationship to regional and national economic performance.

Foundation at Yale and a Fellow of the Econometric Society. He received a B.A. in Economics
