This is unapologetically a different approach than the one taken by most other economics texts. The goal is to understand the universal principles that govern economic activity. These principles are the foundation for evaluating public policy proposals being put forward by politicians and the media. This course is not going to teach the math behind economic modeling that is typically covered in Common Core and the AP micro- and macroeconomics tests. Instead it will prepare students to see the limitations of it.
America: From Gridlock to Deadlock is volume six of A Basic History of the United States by Dr. Clarence Carson.
Reviews and Comments:
Basic Economics 4th Edition - A rare find!
I am really looking forward to using your curriculum! I have a friend who will also be purchasing. We homeschool our high school daughters together and have a number of different economic curriculums and books between us, but each seemed to lack something. Your new book appears to accomplish what we hope to cover without having to piece together from multiple sources. Thank you!
A Must Read!
Basic Economics is a must read!
So much of what is taught today as economics is 180 degrees opposite of the truth. It’s all about how you think and this book will make sure you get it right.
