Format: Hardcover
This book is a climate denial text written by professors who work for the Koch Brothers (Americans For Prosperity). It is conservative propaganda masquerading as objective science. If you are a hardened Fox News fan ... this book is for you.

Before investing in this book, please google "koch, fsu, economics" and click on the link "Is Charles Koch Funding Climate Science Denial in Florida"

In order to access what is stated as: "The 14th edition includes a robust set of online multimedia learning tools with video clips and free quizzes designed to support classroom work. A completely updated Aplia interactive learning system is also available--with practice problems, interactive tutorials, online experiences and more you must have an access card, which was NOT included in my purchase. I am starting school tomorrow and need that access card!

I'm not into economics but I learned a lot in this book. Also used the online classwork available to help me understand and apply what I was learning.

This a very good text book that helps you understand the basics of free market economics. It is written in an easily understandable style. It provides terrific examples to help you understand core concepts. My personal favorite was the reference to the movie Along Came Polly. I have used this textbook as study tool for all of my tests.
