This collection of short articles about issues in economics is recommended in Maybury’s "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" The articles are similar to the few that are included in Bluestocking’s study guide for "Penny Candy."
The thirteen articles are written with the average person in mind, explaining sometimes complicated economic principles in “down-to-earth” language and style. Thought Questions follow each article. These can be used as a written assignment or as the basis for discussion times.
This book can be used with some of the other Bluestocking products to form a high school economics course for a history credit.
