In the Spring 1971 issue of this Journal, Jerome Rothenberg discussed ways of relating economics to the problems of modern society. Thomas B. Duff, a high school teacher, explains how Rothenberg's "four basic lessons" can be incorporated into the social studies and business curricula of secondary schools. Specific areas in history and problems of democracy courses that offer opportunities to include economic principles are identified. Among the analytical tools that can be incorporated into the courses are the production possibilities frontier and the Phillips curve. In the business curriculum, Duff shows how other basic principles and concepts can be related to studies of business and the goal of developing personal economic competency.
