Product Description:

If you find yourself looking for a quick overview of the basics of economics, this may very well be the book for you. Clearly divided into 12 sections, this workbook covers the topics including but not limited to: the definition of economics, scarcity, limited resources, types of business ownership, supply and demand, money, trade, unemployment, and the economic cycle. Each section includes a broad summary and provides three activities for the student to practice comprehension of the subject matter (one of the activities in each section requires further internet research). Although this book is not designed to supply a highly detailed study of the subject of economics, it is aptly named and will provide a general yet solid understanding of basic economics. Workbook is consumable and reproducible. Answers are provided. ~ Enh

Very sparse
There is not much to this book. Not enough information to actually learn the concepts. They could've done a lot better job at explaining things to middle school students.

I ordered Basic Economics as an introduction to the topic for my middle school son The information does not go in depth as much as I would have liked but as it is meant to be an introduction that didn't bother me too much What does bother me is that the book was first published in 1999 and apparently has not been updated One of the things that appealed to me was the internet extension activities Being as the program is 9 years old now the web sites given are either inactive or not relevant to the topic I spent considerable time attempting to find other web sites but it was difficult since little information was given about what the suggested web site contained As an introduction to economics I did not think this program was comprehensive and much was outdated
