"What is freedom? It is the sum total of all our freedoms. To be free on one's own responsibility, to think and to act, to speak and to write, to labor and to exchange, to teach and to learn - this alone is to be free."

- Frederic Bastiat, 1801-185

"I am optimistic about the future because I believe that it is ignorance that explains much of what we see.  I am optimistic because ignorance is curable....."
Walter Williams, 2008

“Remember constantly that a nation cannot long remain strong when each man in it is individually weak, and that neither social forms nor political schemes have yet been found that can make a people energetic by composing it of pusillanimous and soft citizens.”

Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The book I recommend for the Fall semester, 2016  is The Economy Today, by Bradley Schiller. If you are in the macro class, you can get the paperback version of The Macro Economy Today.  If you are in the micro, you can get the paperback of The Micro Economy Today.  If you purchase the hardback version, it will contain both.

You do not need to get the latest edition which I believe is now the 14th.  If you find an earlier edition (say 12 or 13, ) it is good to just get that version as I will fill in any of the latest and greatest from his most recent book.  This should save you a LOT of money.  You should be able to purchase a book for around $10 to $20.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at my above gmail address. The following list of Online bookstores will help you find the least expensive text. The bookstore does NOT carry the this text.
