Product description

Review

'Every honest economics teacher absolutely must make this book a compulsory reading for their students.' Samir Amin, United Nations African Institute for Planning 'What humankind needs second most (first is a cure for global warming), is a means of defusing the lethal ideological superstitions implanted in the educated masses by Samuelson/Mankiw type economics textbooks. Hill and Myatt’s "anti-textbook" goes a long way toward providing it.' Edward Fullbrook 'I highly recommend Hill and Myatt’s "anti-textbook." It is not so much an outright rejection of traditional treatments of introductory microeconomics as it is an exercise in laying bare the premises on which they are based and then suggesting alternative assumptions and methodologies. This approach leaves the student with a much deeper understanding of economic theory and it shows our discipline for what it truly is: an ongoing conversation among competing paradigms. I urge instructors to amend their courses so that time can be made for this important critique.' John. T. Harvey, author of Currencies, Capital Flows and Crises 'Hill and Myatt's timely book should be compulsory reading for every student of economics.' Alan Freeman, UK Association for Heterodox Economics 'Rod Hill and Tony Myatt have written one of the best critical texts of neoclassical microeconomics that I have ever seen. It is a great text to assign along with an introductory or intermediate microeconomics text.' Frederic S. Lee, American Journal of Economics and Sociology
