Professor Hall, from the University of West Virginia, extends this interdisciplinary approach to economic education by providing examples from the long-running animated television show The Simpsons that can be used to stimulate student discussion
and engagement in an introductory course in microeconomics. To create the book, Hall recruited 22 contributors, most of whom are professors of economics at universities such as George Mason and Baylor, allowing the reader to hear from several different voices as they unconventionally illustrate a wide range of economic topics.
