New textbooks (and online practice material)
I have just received an email from the Global Development and Environment Institute (GDAE) at Tufts University announcing two new introductory textbooks, one micro and one macro. I am quoting from the email I received:
"Microeconomics in Context, Second Edition by Neva Goodwin, Julie A. Nelson, Frank Ackerman and Thomas Weisskopf, provides a thorough introduction to the principles of microeconomics, but also delves deeper, offering a fresh portrait of the economic, social, and environmental realities of the 21st century"
"Macroeconomics in Context, First Edition by Neva Goodwin, Julie A. Nelson, and Jonathan Harris, covers standard macro topics such as classical and Keynesian approaches, but also addresses issues such as ecological sustainability, non-marketed production, the quality of life, and the distribution of income."
I am posting this to bring to your attention these new textbooks and the free supplementary materials available online. You can find the exercises here (micro) and here (macro).
