Forensic Economics in the Classroom

Toppino, David, Frank Slesnick, Elizabeth Gunderson, and Robert Male. 2001. “Forensic Economics in the Classroom.”  The Earnings Analyst  4: 53-86.


This paper begins with an explanation of what is meant by the term “forensic economics” and how as an “applied discipline” it relates to economics as an academic discipline. Once the contextual foundation is established for the practice of forensic economics, the focus of this paper shifts to the teaching of forensic economics courses and the value that such courses can add to an economics curriculum. This review of forensic economics in the classroom will include discussion of complete courses, as well as the use of methodology and principals from forensic economics in courses such as Labor Economics and Law and Economics courses. The final section will summarize the paper and draw some conclusions.
