CORE TESTIMONIALS“CORE is a much better fit for my students (on a Master of Public Administration online course) than the text and software we used before - and they love the money they save!” - Jennifer M. Miller, Assistant Professor (Teaching), USC Sol Price School of Public Policy “I calculate that CORE’s efforts will help save my students around $100,000 during the 2017/2018 academic year.
Most of my students are from rural Arkansas - $150 for a single textbook is "real money” to them and the CORE text is superior to most texts in almost every respect. ” - Thad Jackson, Instructor of Economics, Arkansas State University “A vast improvement over existing textbooks. CORE does not shy away from the complexity of the problems we face.
The CORE materials are so good they make me want to teach introductory economics again. ” - Dani Rodrik, Ford Foundation Professor of International Political Economy at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government “I have been using CORE this year for the first time – it is a great success, students were very happy with the material, the interactive platform, and the up-to-date topics covered.
” - Nicolas Coeurdacier, Associate Professor of Economics, Sciences Po, Paris “CORE answers an important but, astonishingly, unfilled need, for an economics text that is respectful of the world as we find it. This means a focus on both the historical foundations of current institutions and trends, but also an awareness of current empirical evidence on economic phenomena. It asks a lot of students but it also rewards their effort with a sense of empowerment.
” - Peter Matthews, Chair of the Department of Economics at Middlebury College “The approach proposed by CORE, based on relevant real-world examples and a sound combination of theoretical models and elements of empirical analysis, is not only exceptionally engaging for students but also pedagogically more effective than all of the other books I have so far experimented with. ” - Maria Alessandra Rossi, Associate Professor of Political Economy, University of Siena “The CORE curriculum marks a significant advancement in economics education. The centrality of institutions and history in its presentation of economics not only brings students closer to the frontier of modern economics than standard texts, but also keeps them interested and engaged throughout the course.
” - Michael Dorsch, Associate Professor of Economics, Central European University “Before CORE, I assumed that all economists would wind up in banking or finance. I realized that the job scope of an economist stretches beyond that. CORE is an excellent book if you want to know more about how economics is relevant in everyday life.
It tackles the fundamentals, but also the issues that we are interested in like the global financial crisis. ” - Adam Nadzri, second year student, University College London “The CORE curriculum was the perfect introduction to my economics course, as it introduced me to a diverse set of topics and analytical tools that equipped me to think critically about economics. The discussion sections were particularly interesting and inspired me to ask my own questions, which eventually led to my fascination with my current research topic on agent based modelling.
