Economic Logic

by Mark Skousen

(Skousen Publishing, Inc, c. 2000)

The micro portion of Mark Skousen's new free-market textbook presents economic concepts in a revolutionary way -- the textbook begins with the profit-loss statement, for example. Each chapter is supported with real world examples, biographies of pertinent economists and recommended reading.

Check out the full content list below as well as the entire text of Chapter One (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer).

Professor Charles Baird (CalState Hayward) wrote me: "Thanks for your new textbook. It is an excellent text for micro principles. The next time I teach that course I shall use it. I have always used Heyne's micro text (a spinoff of The Economic Way of Thinking), but I think your book is better. It has an excellent balance of theory and the real world that no other text has achieved."
