Substantial content moved to web, but you have to buy it again
on March 2, 2009
For $140 you'd think they'd sell you the whole book, but there is some content (listed below) that is only available on the web. Well, maybe it's available - let me see - you need to login as student, new registration, did you get a registration card with your book? Well, I don't know but it's sure not here now. Well then, you'll have to pay another $16 to access the web content. How would you like to pay?
Honestly, I knew textbook companies were crooks but....
What's missing: chapters on tech and efficiency, developing countries, and the gold-standard and Bretton Woods systems. Also there are worked problems, interactive graphs, and 70 articles on certain histories.
None of this is available for the $140 price. Or maybe it is. Maybe I accidentally threw away my registration card because (silly me) I had no reason to suspect that part of the book was not included with the book. Now, without said card I will have to pony up another $16 to finish buying the book I thought I bought. FU, McGraw-Hill.
