Net Exports and International Finance Chapter Amay Singh rated it really liked it Apr 27, Refresh and try again. I’m generally unimpressed with authors that strive to distinguish their text by presenting material in an avant-garde or experimental way.

The topics in the text are presented in a logical and clear fashion. A great job was done with the text’s interface. I did not see a glossary, which is a glaring omission for an introductory textbook.
I very much like the text and will consider it highly for adoption in my Principles of Economics Courses. However of the very many pages I did read, terminology was always consistent. Assuming they don’t exist, their absence is certainly not a deal-breaker. I only found a few issues from the online version that I read from.

That said, after repeated attempts, I was unable to locate a glossary or index for this otherwise fine text. There are many chapters, instructors can pick and choose and rearrange as they see fit. This is the problem of principles texts generally, and the inaccuracies here are on a par with those in other published works.
I could be wrong often am, ask the wifebut the authors of this text leave me with the impression that they will be responsible stewards of their OER text. Consumption and the Aggregate Expenditures Model Chapter I like that instructors can easily pick and choose chapters, and the graphs and charts are colorful and engaging.
