Abstract

The Curriculum Open-Access Resources for Economics (CORE) Project is transforming economics education. An open-access introductory text, The Economy, is available free of charge worldwide in digital form, and at modest cost in print, with adoptions at more than a hundred institutions and thirty countries to date. Several additional projects are underway, including the development of course-materials in public policy and empirical reasoning. In this paper we describe four innovations — in process, content, publishing, and outreach — that are embodied in this initiative.
