This high-school text teaches the intelligent young reader how to think about economic problems. Its chapters on action, preference, demand and supply, value theory, money, and price controls emphasize deductive logic and the market process.
by Bettina Bien Greaves - Foundation for Economic Education
The book should help teachers of high school economics explain economic principles in the classroom. It contains many suggestions for explaining economics to younger students, as well as material to challenge older students and even adult readers.
by F.W. Taussig - The MacMillan Company
The author states the principles of economics in such form that they shall be comprehensible to an educated and intelligent person who has not before made any systematic study of the subject. The book does not gloss over difficulties, though.
