The economics anti-textbook : a critical thinker's guide to microeconomics by Roderick Hill( Book )

24 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mainstream textbooks present economics as an objective science free from value judgments; that settles disputes relatively easily by testing hypotheses; that applies a settled body of principles; and contains policy prescriptions supported by a consensus of professional opinion. The Anti-Textbook argues that this is a myth - one which is not only dangerously misleading but also bland and boring. It challenges the mainstream textbooks' assumptions, arguments, models and evidence. It puts the controversy and excitement back into economics to reveal a fascinating and a vibrant field of study - one which is more an 'art of persuasion' than it is a science. The Anti-Textbook's chapters parallel the major topics in the typical text. They begin with a boiled-down account of them before presenting an analysis and critique. Drawing on the work of leading economists, the Anti-Textbook lays bare the blind spots in the texts and their sins of omission and commission. It shows where hidden value judgments are made and when contrary evidence is ignored. It shows the claims made without any evidence and the alternative theories that aren't mentioned. It shows the importance of power, social context, and legal framework. The Economics Anti-Textbook is the students' guide to decoding the textbooks and shows how real economics is much more interesting than they let on."--Publisher description

Canadian trade policies and the world economy by John Whalley( Book )

"Canada is a relatively small, open economy with a large amount of foreign trade relative to its gross national product. The majority of that trade - over 70 percent - is with the United States. Policies that either limit or encourage foreign trade are therefore more important for Canada than for many other countries."--
