Category Description for Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?:

Not conversant enough on economic theory to explain to your children why our economy is in the state it is, when, why and how we've gone off the gold standard, and why prices keep rising? Here's a simple, entertaining and in-depth introduction to economic theory. Written as a series of letters from "Uncle" Eric to a nephew or niece, this book explains economics along with interesting historical information. It covers topics such as the origin and history of money, the history of our dollar, the economic behavior of the government, the business cycle, inflation, recession, depression, the federal debt, foreign currency, how and why the government impacts the value of money, and the wisdom and pitfalls of investing. This 7th edition also adds reference lists of Web sites and financial newsletters for additional research. Clear enough for a 5th grader to read and understand, but not oversimplified.

Is this the 5th Edition needed for the 2021-2022 CC Challenge I course?
Karen on Jun 14, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this is the 5th edition (which correlates with the 7th edition of Penny Candy). It has a copyright date of 2015. Previous copyright dates are: 2010, 2004, 2000, and 1998.
is this the newest (2015) edition?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I noticed the chapters were a bit different in the Economic guide for the newer version of Penny Candy and there was updated information, so I went ahead and bought the newer version of Penny Candy. That worked out best for us and it didn’t cost too much more.
Is using the Bluestocking guide with Penny Candy enough for a high school level economics course?

Whatever Happened to Penny Candy 7th Edition
BEST ANSWER: Especially, I believe it would. I only bought the book Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, but wish I had bought the Bluestocking Guide: Economics too. We were short on ready cash at the time. My daughter is reading the book, doing chapter summaries, and an essay to complete the course. In Ohio where we live, she only needs a half credit in Economics, so my husband and I felt that would satisfy the requirements. She has enjoyed it, and says that "all Americans should be required to read it before voting in the elections this year!" I am glad I bought it. Hope that this helps.
Is this a question and answer book to Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Bluestocking Guide is used to reinforce and enhance a student's understanding of Economics presented in WHATEVER HAPPENED TO PENNY CANDY? It asks questions, gives essay assignments, a final exam, other exercises, additional readings, and more.
