TEACHING ECONOMICS WITH SCENES FROM MONEYBALL
Keywords:economics education, teaching methods, undergraduate economics, Moneyball
The award-winning film Moneyball is considered one of economic educators’ top movies for teaching economics, but resources to teach with the film are scant. We summarize eight key scenes in the movie that are closely tied with economics topics, many of which can be used in a principles-level course. For each scene we provide the corresponding topic, a brief summary, and a follow-up question to ask students.
