The Economic Conversation

by Arjo Klamer , Deirdre McCloskey , Stephen Ziliak
The Economic Conversation is a new principles of economics textbook, designed to make students aware of the rhetoric of the discipline of economics through the use of dialogue--"conversations" among the authors, as well as a few fictional students. The goal is to draw attention to the assumptions, goals and values that underlie economic principles, and to do so in a manner that introduces them to coherent and well-known alternative economic perspectives.
