The Economics Anti-Textbook A Critical Thinkers Guide to Microeconomics

Review :

A must read for anyone interested in economics. This is a pretty good starting point, and each chapter ends with a few references for more on the topic. The authors highlight not only and necessarily what they think is wrong with the economic theory as it is taught, but also highlight what introductory texts normally leave out. They spend a couple chapters debunking common neoliberal principles by comparing them to how economics actually operates in the real world. They also argue that the concerns that intro texts leave out are precisely the issues that matter most in economics. The book's treatment of these issues are well written, and wide in scope and breadth, and actually make current issues make sense.
