Simply Put: A Study in Economics


The two files have been combined into one. The Teacher Key includes several activiites, answers to the Lesson Review Questions, and a mid-term, final exam, and answers for both tests. (The tests are optional, but are included for those who need them.)

From Catherine's Preface to the book:

Economics gets a bad rap among so many, and yet as a long-time student and teacher of economics, I often wonder why. Maybe it’s because most economic textbooks are so boring. In fact, I started this book after I looked unsuccessfully for an economics textbook that I could recommend for high schoolers. I found few options that didn’t put me to sleep – and I like the topic! Thus began my desire to write an alternative economics textbook. Here it is, after more than two years, my contribution to teaching economics. I hope you and your students will soon find it as interesting a topic as I do.

Note: It is safe to say that all history and economics books are written from the point of view of the author(s) whether they state it or not. This book is written by a “classic liberal” – nowadays more often called a conservative, and that clearly shows throughout. If you are new to Austrian[1] economics, or confused by the difference between Austrian and Keynesian[2] economics, please read on.

[1] The school of economics I lean towards.

[2] The one most of the people in government today agree with.

Mrs. Jaime said she was looking for a high school course for economics and couldn't find one, so she chose to write her own. However, this is a tremendous gem of a find! If you are looking for an economics course that works for almost everyone with lit [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
