This book provides an accessible introduction to nine different approaches to economics: from feminist to ecological and Marxist to behavioural. Each chapter is written by a leading expert in the field described and is intended to stand on its own as well as providing an ambitious survey that seeks to highlight the true diversity of economic thought. Students of economics around the world have begun to demand a more open economics education. This book represents a first step in creating the materials needed to introduce new and diverse ideas into the static world of undergraduate economics. This book will provide context for undergraduate students by placing the mainstream of economic thought side by side with more heterodox schools. This is in keeping with the Rethinking Economics campaign which argues that students are better served when they are presented with a spectrum of economic ideas rather than just the dominant paradigm. Rethinking Economics: An Introduction to Pluralist Economics is a great entry-level economics textbook for lecturers looking to introduce students to the broader range of ideas explored within the economics profession. It is also appropriate and accessible for people outside of academia who are interested in economics and economic theory.

Issues in Economics is structured around major policy issues and is divided into three parts: "Introduction to Issues in Economics," "Microeconomic Issues," and "Macroeconomic Issues." The first three chapters are basic introductions to the subject matter of economics with emphasis on theory, institutions, and policy. Theory and institutions becomes the framework for policy analysis. The first three chapters of the second section deal with the theory of the household, the theory of the firm and the theory of markets. The remainder of the second section deals with specific issues, such as government regulation; agricultural policy; healthcare policy; and corporate accountability. In "Macroeconomic Issues," the first chapter's focus is "Measuring Economic Activity." This chapter develops the accounting framework on which macroeconomic theory is based. The second chapter is "Aggregate Supply and Demand." It develops these concepts and the concept of normal output around which short-run output fluctuates with shifts in supply and demand. The remainder of Part III features specific policy issues, such as business cycles; stabilization policy; the role of the Federal Reserve System, the role of finance in the economy; and international policy issues. This textbook is appropriate for a freshman/sophomore level one semester introduction to economics course or issues in economics course; it can also be used to supplement a standard two semester economics textbook.
