CORE Insights

CORE Insights are a self-contained educational resource with interactive questions to test understanding (with feedback on correct and incorrect answers) and a variety of student learning activities including data exploration and visualization, report writing, and suggestions for further research. The activities could be mixed to meet the needs of audiences at different levels in their learning (including not only beginning students but also advanced activities for postgraduate students and intermediate ones for a final year undergraduate).

The aim of the Insights series is to provide additional teaching and learning resources linked to relevant conceptual treatments in CORE’s ebooks. They will cover a wide range of topics that could not find a place in the ebooks and which might be of particular use in courses beyond introductory economics or of relevance in certain countries and regions.

CORE Insights are not the work of the CORE Team (who have authored The Economy and ESPP). Instead, it is the work of authors who were inspired by CORE.

CORE Insights are:

  • Financing American Government, by Martina Jasova (Barnard College, Columbia University), and Rajiv Sethi (Barnard College, Columbia University, and Santa Fe Institute). Concepts in the Insight are related to material in Unit 10, Unit 14, Unit 15 and Unit 17 of The Economy, and Unit 9 and Unit 10 of Economy, Society, and Public Policy.
  • Too Big to Fail: Lessons from a Decade of Financial Sector Reforms, by Claudia M. Buch (Deutsche Bundesbank), Angela Dominguez-Cardoza (Deutsche Bundesbank and University of Kiel), and Jonathan Ward (Financial Stability Board). Concepts in the Insight are related to material in Unit 6, Unit 10, Unit 11, Unit 12Unit 17, and Unit 22 of The EconomyUnit 9, Unit 10, and Unit 12 of Economy, Society, and Public Policy, and Project 10 of Doing Economics.

CORE Insights in development include:

  • A world of differences (Summer 2021)
  • In defence of public debt (Autumn 2021)
  • Digital platform markets (Autumn 2021)
