Eartheconomics: An alternative introduction

This paper  sets out the didactical and logical arguments for using  the closed economy concept at the start of introductory courses to discuss our planet’s economy. The paper illustrates how observations at the level of planet Earth can be used while teaching relationships that are studied in a closed economy setting. It provides an overview of internet resources with world data and some practical examples that can readily be used in teaching.

Book: pp. 1-8, 11-18 (updated tables), 71-72 (exercise 6.5) and 126-128 (exercise 10.7)
