  1. Teaching Entrepreneurship to Undergraduates

    Teaching Entrepreneurship to Undergraduates

    Colin Jones
    An experienced entrepreneur and educator, Colin Jones has written this book to help entrepreneurship educators pause and reflect upon their students’ learning, and therefore their own responsibilities as educators. He advocates a student-centric way to teach entrepreneurship and to building the curriculum. He shakes up the reader’s thinking and invites discussion on an experiential learning approach, to engage students in learning about entrepreneurship. This book is deliberatively provocative, and awakens another level of thinking on how to teach entrepreneurship. It will be required reading for entrepreneurship educators and those building a university entrepreneurship programme for years to come. Learn More

  4. The College Cost Disease

    The College Cost Disease

    Robert E. Martin
    College cost per student has been on the rise at a pace that matches – or exceeds – healthcare costs. Unlike healthcare, though, teaching quality has declined, and rapidly rising costs and declining quality are not trends easily forgiven by society. The College Cost Disease addresses these problems, providing a behavioral framework for the chronic cost/quality consequences with which higher education is fraught. Providing many compelling insights into the issues plaguing higher education, Robert Martin expounds upon H.R. Bowen’s revenue theory of cost by detailing experience good theory, the principal/agent problem, and non-profit status. Learn More

They describe how a network can learn from experience and deploy that learning in the marketplace. Learn More

  18. Economic Advice and Rhetoric

    Economic Advice and Rhetoric

    Onno Bouwmeester
    This book compares the approaches of consultants and academic advisers and provides an in-depth analysis of their advice argumentation. Both compete on the market for economic advice, with consultants enjoying a larger market share and usually obtaining higher fees. However, academics criticize them for overcharging, shallowness, and quick-and-dirty methods. So, are consultants’ clients misled or even cheated? Not necessarily. The book reveals that academics have drawbacks as well; their arguments are less balanced than those of consultants and their estimates contradict each other more. Learn More

    European Economics at a Crossroads

    J. Barkley Rosser Jr, Richard P.F. Holt, David Colander
    As Europe moves toward an integrated academic system, European economics is changing.

The authors argue that modern economics can no longer usefully be described as ‘neoclassical’, but is much better described as complexity economics. The complexity approach embraces rather than assumes away the complexities of social interaction. Learn More
