From the publisher

Mainstream textbooks present economics as an objective science free from value judgements. The Microeconomics Anti-Textbook demonstrates this to be a myth - one which serves to make such textbooks not only off-puttingly bland but also dangerously misleading in their justification of the status quo and neglect of alternatives.

In this fully updated and expanded edition of their celebrated text, Professors Rod Hill and Tony Myatt lay out the essentials of each topic in a clear and concise way, before presenting an 'anti-text' analysis and critique. Challenging the assumptions, arguments, models and evidence of economics, Hill and Myatt provide the essential guide to decoding the textbooks, and show that real economics is far more interesting - and subversive - than the simplistic version presented to students.
