5.0 out of 5 stars great book Feb. 8 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro economics text Sept. 11 2013
By Self Making Machine - Published on Amazon.com
This textbook is really quite excellent. It's descriptions are clear, the examples interesting, and there's even some humor left included after the editor and publisher's got done with it. Of secondary importance, after the primary of clear descriptions of concepts, is the lack of bias in this book. It's rare that I've seen an economics text present ideas in such an ideologically neutral way: The book never says "such-and-such is a significantly superior way to do things given that you're a rational person," where other texts I've seen say almost exactly that in a (usually) more subtle manner. This book states assumptions and presents viewpoints. It doesn't bludgeon you with the Holy Truthy Facts of Economics, even while it describes why one viewpoint is the presiding one in economic thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Economics U$A, Seventh Edition March 4 2009
By Christine Pham - Published on Amazon.com
Half the price I would have gotten for if I didn't surf around to look at the "new and used" icon. Definitely be careful when you search for books on Amazon. I can get a little tricky. The initial page that shows up usually shows you the highest price of the book that they carry. Even though it was in the "used" section, the book came in brand new just like the description. Totally satisfied.
