This textbook includes 36 lessons and is the equivalent of a one semester course in high school economics. It also includes review questions for each lesson, an optional mid-term and final exam, and several economic activities.
From Catherine's Preface to the book:
Economics gets a bad rap among so many, and yet as a long-time student and teacher of economics, I often wonder why. Maybe it’s because most economic textbooks are so boring. In fact, I started this book after I looked unsuccessfully for an economics textbook that I could recommend for high schoolers. I found few options that didn’t put me to sleep – and I like the topic! Thus began my desire to write an alternative economics textbook. Here it is, after more than two years, my contribution to teaching economics. I hope you and your students will soon find it as interesting a topic as I do.
Note: It is safe to say that all history and economics books are written from the point of view of the author(s) whether they state it or not. This book is written by a “classic liberal” – nowadays more often called a conservative, and that clearly shows throughout. If you are new to Austrian economics, or confused by the difference between Austrian and Keynesianeconomics, please read on.
