Students use a comparative approach to explore concepts and materials that are frequently neglected in other economics courses. An introductory essay provides background information to the 12 classroom- ready lessons. Students examine and answer: What is the economic basis for land ownership and resources? What are the advantages and disadvantages of central decision-making? What is the appropriate scope of, and limits to, competition? What is government’s role in a market economy? How much security should government provide for low-income workers? How much inequality in distribution of wealth is acceptable? Table of Contents | Introduction
