Abstract:     
In this chapter, we address the problems of teaching microeconomic principles to business students. We describe the peculiar features of student demand that make teaching economics using a model-based pedagogy unsuccessful. We conclude that a problem-solving pedagogy is a better way to satisfy student demand for business education.
