Introduction to Economics

(this category is for introductions for undergraduates to Economics that are not intended as introductions to Macro or Micro (those being in their corresponding categories below), and hence generally not intended as introductions to the “field of economics,” which requires teaching about what it taught in mainstream courses even if to reject it. These are intended, as labeled, to introduce people to the way the actual capitalist economy we live in works.  As such they could go in the category of “Political Economy, Radical Economics, Heterodox Economics, …” below (as noted there), but are separated out here for their use in teaching a particular type of introductory course …)
