Summer 2016 - E600 Book and Syllabus

Three books in Economic Analysis

(1) The primary historical book for E244 and E600 is Parkin's 8th edition, not a newer one that will cost you so much money.  Your book could cost as low as $4.89 at the time of this writing (see link to the text).  Do not bother to buy MyEconLab.  Go ahead and order the book onine.  You will can start the course without it since you do not need it until module 2. If you cannot find this text, I have a suggestion how to transition with me to the new text as shown in (2). See inside the course.

(2) The second book is by Timothy Taylor and is FREE and Open Source. Please go to this link to acquire the text.

(3) A third book is by Henry Hazlitt, Economics in One Lesson. This text is also free, please download it and read the first two chapters and then any other one chapter. I bet you get hooked and read more.

Syllabii for each course is below.

Buy both of the next two books Microeconomics and Macroeconomics to have the same content as Parkin. Economics, 8th edition above. Buying both might be cheaper than the one larger book.
