Ideology That Masquerades As Science 9 Aug. 2013
By greg jones - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have been forced to use this textbook for my AP course in Micro and Macro Economics. I have never encountered a more relentlessly slanted presentation of an academic subject in my life. The author was a Canadian proponent of Milton Friedman's Monetarism and he brings a relentlessly libertarian position to each and every issue. When there is a glaring weakness in one of his arguments he covers it up, when there is a strength in the arguments of his opponents he omits it. On issue after issue ( global trade, the minimum wage, taxes, rent control,etc)there is only one position presented. Anyone who is a Keynesian is treated as a simple illiterate. His arguments are drawn almost entirely from a deductive model. Make a hand full of assumption regarding an idealized model and then express them in a formal model and derive the result. Of course this has a long and productive history in the field but only when one then loosens these assumptions and then checks them against empirical research. This author can't be bothered with any of these complications. Finally, this 10th ed.was published in 2012 in these 700+ pages he gives one paragraph to it and its just to say Dodd Frank wont work. One can only hope that the era of this sort of catechism is coming to an end.

Not a good book to learn macro 28 Oct. 2011
By Dan K - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was required for my macroeconomics class. I found it to be boring, dense, and without any flow. The book just throws too much information at you all at once and I found that to make the book very confusing. Macro is not exactly easy and you need to understand the graphs and numbers and this book makes that very frustrating. I only did well in the class because the professor only tested us on class discussions and not specifics from the reading. Macroeconomics can be interesting but this book won't help you realize that. Unfortunately, I am done with my study of economics so I can't recommend anything else. All I can say is to search for another book.

Also, for such a small book, I don't know why it is so expensive.

My experience was awesome and I will definitely use them again. My shipment arrived ahead of time. My daughter was able to have her book in enough time for class. Plus they had the cheapest prices.
