About Elaine Schwartz

Elaine SchwartzI am an economics teacher and writer. At the Kent Place School in Summit NJ, I teach economics while I have written Econ 101 ½  (Avon Books/Harper Collins 1995), Economics Our American Economy (Addison Wesley 1994), and financial history articles for the Encyclopedia of New Jersey (2004). Currently, I am working on an updated interactive version of my econ textbook that my micro/macro econ class is using.

At Kent Place, I was honored through an endowed chair in economics and chaired the History Department for a decade.  I also present Econ 101 ½ talks, have developed economics curricula, and led workshops for the Foundation for Teaching Economics and the National Council on Economic Education.  With Annenberg/CPB I have worked on an economics video series and for the Concord Coalition, I have facilitated a dialogue on national spending for schools and neighborhood groups. 

My work has always involved making economics interesting and accessible.
