Abstract

The article discusses the use of a barter Edgeworth box in teaching students in economic classes about the connection between distributive efficiency and exchange. The BarterEdgeworthBoxHW.xlsx file available at the website http://users.dickinson.edu/ is said to allow students or instructors to build the box and model trading in class via computer projection. Another feature of the file is that students can use an interactive graph to add or remove axes and individual curves.
