Econlib in Classes
By David Henderson
When I was at the Association for Private Enterprise Education (APEE) annual meetings in Las Vegas last week, two professors came up to me and, unsolicited, sang high praises of Liberty Fund’s Library of Economics and Liberty web site. Both gave me permission to name them.
Cecil Bohanon of Ball State University told me that the materials on the site–he singled out the classic books such as The Wealth of Nations, the Feature Articles, and The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics–allow him to avoid having his students buy an expensive textbook. Instead, he can use the Liberty Fund materials and have his students subscribe to The Economist.
I recommend that other professors take a look at some of the materials. You might save your students a lot of search and a fair amount of money.
