studies) at Harvard, where he won the Allyn Young Teaching Prize.He was Associate Editor of

the Journal of Economic Perspectives and the Journal of Economic Education, and he was a member

of the AEA’s Committee on Economic Education.

 

Professor Case received his B.A. from Miami University in 1968; spent three years on active

duty in the Army, and received his Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University in 1976.

is author or coauthor of five books, including Principles of Economics, Economics and Tax Policy,

and Property Taxation: The Need for Reform, and he has published numerous articles in professional

journals.

 

For the last 25 years, his research has focused on real estate markets and prices.He has authored

numerous professional articles, many of which attempt to isolate the causes and consequences of

boom and bust cycles and their relationship to regional and national economic performance.

 

Ray C. Fair is Professor of Economics at Yale University. He is a member of the Cowles

Foundation at Yale and a Fellow of the Econometric Society. He received a B.A. in Economics

from Fresno State College in 1964 and a Ph.D. in Economics from MIT in 1968. He taught at

of finance, voting behavior, and aging in sports. His publications include Specification, Estimation,

work with the U.S. model on the Internet is a useful complement to an introductory

macroeconomics course.

in the ninth edition of this book. Professor Oster has a B.A. in Economics from Hofstra

organization. Since 1982, Professor Oster has taught primarily in the Management School,
