Dollars and Sense has just published the 32nd edition of Real World Macro, a lively, thought-provoking supplement to introductory and intermediate macroeconomics textbooks. Real World Macro asks the big questions that standard textbooks try to avoid: What's so great about growth? Is unemployment natural? Why should inequality matter? (May 7, 2015) 

Dollars and Sense has just published the 22nd edition of Real World Micro, a great supplement to any mainstream introductory textbook. In addition to presenting alternative perspectives on the basics—supply and demand, production and consumption decisions, market structure and monopoly, market failure and the roles of government—Real World Micro relates theoretical principles to current controversies about income distribution, environmental protection, taxes, labor, trade, and intergenerational equity. (May 7, 2015)
