Based on his popular course taught at Columbia University, Skousen starts his?micro" section with Car

Economics is full of puzzles and paradoxes that often frustrate and challenge everyone, including economists. This engaging book focuses on three types of paradox.

Secondly, those paradoxes which have perplexed economists in the past but have since been fairly resolved (such as the diamond-water paradox). Finally, empirical or conceptual anomalies that remain unresolved and present a challenge to today's economists (such as the voting paradox)

The making of modern economics : the lives and ideas of the great thinkers by Mark Skousen( )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bold new history of economics tells the dramatic story of how the great economic thinkers built a rigorous social science without peer. Unlike other economics histories, Skousen's book provides a running plot with a singular heroic figure, Adam Smith, at the center of the discipline. Skousen unites the great thinkers by ranking them for or against Adam Smith and his "system of natural liberty." He shows how Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, John Maynard Keynes, and even laissez-faire disciples Robert Malthus and David Ricardo detracted from Adam Smith's classical model of democratic capitalism, while Alfred Marshall, Irving Fisher, Ludwig von Mises, and Milton Friedman, among others, remodeled and improved upon Smithian economics. Highlights include humorous anecdotes and exciting new revelations about the lives of the great economists

During these years Franklin also helped write our nation's Constitution and planned an American Empire that would displace the British Empire. Now we get the rest of the story in Franklin's own words
