Public Goods in Everyday LIfe

A new teaching module, Public Goods in Everyday Life, has just been published. This tool is for teachers, activists, organizers and anyone who wants to learn more about public goods. The module was created by June Sekera, Director of the Public Goods Institute.

Here's a description:

This module offers a framework for understanding “public goods” as a concept in economics and as real-world goods and services. The module provides a pragmatic understanding of public goods, enabling students with or without a background in economics to consider and appreciate public goods in the context of their daily lives. The framework draws on and builds forward from “historical school” public economics theory, which is not normally presented in mainstream economics texts. Concepts are empirically-based and contemporary: pivotal ideas are connected to 21st century real-world evidence and challenges. The module is suitable for use in courses in economics, sociology, political science, public law, social history and related fields.

The module contains five classroom sessions with optional sub-sections. The format is interactive and accessible, with diagrams, text boxes, discussion questions and illustrations to help students grasp and apply concepts.
