Hunt and Sherman

I have been reading the 1972 first edition of Economics by Hunt and Sherman as I mentioned a few posts back. I am amazed that the book, basically a Marxist critique of capitalism, was assigned as the textbook for the mainstream microeconomics course I took then.

It must have been the spirit of the times that put that book in my hands for that class.

Hunt and Sherman write a pleasing prose style, and they present a very interesting history of economics in the first part of the book. Maybe that is why we were assigned their book? Just kidding about that reason!
