This textbook on economics centers around student needs and expectations. Students learn best from an inductive approach, in which they are first confronted with a problem, and then led through the process of solving that problem.
This text is designed to provide you with a very comprehensive and easy-to-understand introduction to economics. This text will assume no background in economics. All you really need is an open mind and an interest in learning.
by Bettina Bien Greaves - Foundation for Economic Education
