Textbooks and Readings

by Campbell R. McConnell and Stanley L. Brue

15th edition

This is our basic, state adopted, text. It is not my favorite, but it was the only text offered for adoption in Texas. So it was certainly the best choice. It is supported by an excellent Website!



by Paul Heyne

3rd edition

This is our supplemental text. It is much more valuable in terms of understanding economic thinking. In fact it is the "micro split" of The Economic Way of Thinking.

These paperbacks are falling apart, but we cannot get new ones!

  The Armchair Economist

by Steven Landsburg

Although it's a bit dated for some purposes, this is probably the best book ever written on the subject of economics. It's a great read! Click here to order from Amazon.com.


  The Fatal Equilibrium

by Marshall Jevons

This murder mystery novel illustrates economic reasoning. It also is a great read!
