“I like [Learning Curve’s] set-up because it gives the students who are having a difficult time more opportunities to practice while moving students who are comfortable with the material to the end of the work more quickly.”
— Travis L. Hayes, Cleveland State Community College
“The real strength of this book is that it presents all the concepts in a clear and concise manner and [is] easy to follow. I do not tend to distinguish economics from non-economics majors at the first-year level.”
— Ambrose Leung, Mount Royal University
“I believe most of the students will find [Chiang] useful and able to apply to their lives in the future.”
— Lorraine Li, Gateway Community College
“[Chiang] makes learning economics much less intimidating. Examples are straightforward and focus on core principles without adding too many details or unimportant information.”
— Susan Russell, Saddleback College

He is a frequent presenter at major economics conferences and at universities across the country and around the world.

As an administrator in the College of Business, Eric’s role as director of instructional technology involves assisting instructors with effectively implementing classroom technologies. In this position, Eric also ensures that the quality of online courses meets accreditation standards, including those set by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
In addition to his dedication to teaching economic principles and his administrative duties, Eric devotes time to new research in economic education.

In his spare time, Eric enjoys studying cultures and languages. He has visited all fifty U.S. states and over eighty countries, often taking long jogs in the cities he visits to experience local life to the fullest. A more quirky fact: Eric is a professional mini-golf player, having competed in both the Pro Mini Golf U.S. Open and Masters tournaments. In 2019, he was a contestant on ABC’s extreme mini-golf game show Holey Moley.
