Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is important for understanding how economic principles can be applied to real-world problems. Professor Spulber discusses nine important myths that are often cited in the economics profession. These myths have important lessons for a number of current policy issues such as the Microsoft case, the supposed superiority of Betamax over VHS and the supposed current stock market bubble." Jack Carr, University of Toronto. <!--end-->

"Famous Fables of Economics is a welcome addition. Students will learn that fables and myths should not be accepted at face value. More importantly, they will see how economics can be used to challenge these myths. The book will prove useful in an array of courses, especially those that deal with policy issues." Roger D Blair, University of Florida.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Collection of classic articles in economics. Coase, Cheung, and Liebowitz and Margolis, are just a few of the contributors to debunk many of the myths from economics.
