Philip Sirianni Presents Paper at Conference

Dr. Philip Sirianni (Department of Economics, Finance, and Accounting) presented a research paper at the Southern Economic Association Annual Conference, held from November 19-21 in Washington, D.C. This pedagogical paper offers a class activity in which students’ own choices are used to illustrate the economic concepts of income and substitution effects. The exercise is self-contained and requires minimal setup costs for instructors. The paper also discusses how to assess the effectiveness of the exercise, as well as students’ perceptions of it.
