Fifty Economic Fallacies Exposed
Inst of Economic Affairs| ISBN 0255365187 | 2002-12 | PDF | 187 pages | 301 kB

Since 1988, Professor Geoffrey Wood of the Sir John Cass Business School, City of London, has written a regular column in the IEA's journal Economic Affairs, in which he exposes popular economic fallacies. This book collects fifty of these columns and exposes numerous common fallacies - for example, about the supposed dangers of free trade, the abilities of governments to control the economy, the effects of government regulation, and establishing the "correct" rate at which to join the Euro. These lucid and stimulating columns are invaluable to students struggling to master some of the complexities of economic theory and its applications, who often find the most effective way to learn economic analysis is to see such fallacies exposed. It is a text particularly suitable for first-year economics students, complementing existing textbooks as it does, and clarifying basic concepts in economics while demonstrating the practical uses of economic theory.

Lucas, with more space being devoted to seminal theorists who opened up new horizons for economics.

Fifty Years of Change on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Growth, Development, and Quality of Life

Fifty Years of Change on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Growth, Development, and Quality of Life by Joan B. Anderson, James Gerber
Publisher: University of Texas Press | Number Of Pages: 304 | Publication Date: 2007-12-15 | ISBN-10: 0292717199 | PDF | 5 Mb

The U.S. and Mexican border regions have experienced rapid demographic and economic growth over the last fifty years. In this analysis, Joan Anderson and James Gerber offer a new perspective on the changes and tensions pulling at the border from both sides through a discussion of cross-border economic issues and thorough analytical research that examines not only the dramatic demographic and economic growth of the region, but also shifts in living standards, the changing political climate, and environmental pressures, as well as how these affect the lives of people in the border region.
Creating what they term a Border Human Development Index, the authors rank the quality of life for every U.S. county and Mexican municipio that touches the 2,000-mile border. Using data from six U.S. and Mexican censuses, the book adeptly illustrates disparities in various aspects of economic development between the two countries over the last six decades.
