David Colander's Economics textbook is clearly written and has a fair amount of humor in it. It covers both advanced placement level (introductory college level) microeconomics and macroeconomics extremely well. His explanations of the Bretton Woods System, supply-side economics, and the effects of monetary and fiscal policy on exchange rates and trade are the best I have read in any college textbook, and this is just to name a few. In my opinion Economics by David Colander is the best introductory level college economics textbook on the market today.

Very thorough, yet accessible, economics text. It can be long winded at times, but this is to be expected in an economics textbook--no one is going to take it seriously if it's under 1000 pages. For an introductory text, the more complicated concepts (those with three or four accompanying graphs) should have been broken down in a simpler manner--but I hear that isn't how you sell text books. Maybe he should include video content for the hairy stuff (my classes were online with no lectures). Perhaps more students would be interested in economics if they weren't on the verge of crying when they study some of this stuff.

UPDATE: I *really* learned economics by listening to and watching Sowell and Friedman on YouTube. Good videos of a young, snotty Michael Moore--as a college student--attacking Friedman, priceless.

Very impressed with this book. Colander explains economic concepts in a way that is easily understood. Colander uses his wit throughout the textbook and is anything but dry. You would be very lucky to use this text in your Micro/Macro Econ course.

I have not finished the book yet but I have never enjoyed reading a textbook til now! I would ask this author to write my other textbooks. I would even read this book for the fun of it :)

I choose this rating because the book was in good condition when I received it. Also because of the author David Colander. The author puts some of his own humor in his writing which is enjoyable especially in a text book. Economics is a very interesting subject and Colander is passionate about his writing. He gives great examples on several topics throughout the book. I do not enjoy reading at all however, I actually enjoy reading this book. If you are taking an macroeconomics class I hope you use this book you will more than likely enjoy it!
