I can't remember, or find by searching, the author/title of the new high school level economics text someone is publishing recently.  I've seen it on mises.org within the last month or two.  I want to cite it as something an opponent could read if they can't digest Man, Economy, and State.

Can y'all help out?

Tks,  Doug Stewart

Head's up for everyone, the Teacher's Manual just came out last month...

Teaching Tomorrow's Economists

 

All related links can be found at the Mises Wiki article.

If you teach AP Econ, they want the standard version.

I also recommend teaching standard economics to actually have the students know what they're discussing if they have to argue against them.

Here's how the manual works: First, before introducing a particular chapter (or lesson), the teacher needs to read it in the student text. Then, the teacher should read the accompanying material in the manual. For each section of each chapter, the manual may give the historical context, clarify the relationship between what the student is learning from the text compared to a typical college textbook, warn about possible confusions the student may encounter, give links for the teacher's own edification (not necessarily to be assigned to the student), and so forth.

I agree. Public Goods Theory =
