Fall 2015 - E600 Book and Syllabus
in E244 Fall 2015
primary historical book for E600 taught 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
writing (see link to the text). Do not buy MyEconLab. Go
ahead and order the book onine. You will can start the course
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 and the one that this course is
transitioning to is by Timothy Taylor and is FREE and Open Source.
Please go to this link to acquire the text in one of many ways.
(3) In the course is a third book 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. http://fee.org/resources/detail/economics-in-one-lesson-2
