Tony Myatt

Tony received his PhD from McMaster University with distinction in theory and is an award-winning teacher. He has taught at McMaster University, the University of Western Ontario, the University of Toronto, and the University of New Brunswick, where he has been professor of economics since 1992. His research interests have included stabilization policy, the supply-side effects of interest rates, labor market discrimination, unemployment rate disparities, and the methods and content of economic education. He has developed several different introductory courses as vehicles for teaching principles of economics, including “Economics of everyday life,” “Economics in the real world,” and “Economics through film.” None of them have been as successful as the critical perspectives approach embodied in this book. Along with Rod Hill, he is the author of The Microeconomics Anti-Textbook.
