Prices of Economics Textbooks

Searchable database for economics textbooks, with retail prices and predicted publication date of next edition. Most Principles of Economics textbooks now sell for $150 to $175.

Trichet just told Ben Bernankie and Hanky Panky Paulson to stick it, we ain't playing that crap.

If the ECB had lowered interest rates at a time when inflation was accelerating, ``citizens would have suffered higher inflation'' and ``we would have been asking our fellow citizens to bail out the banks,'' Trichet said.

Bye, Bye Bucky and those text books are only going to get more expensive in the US as this fiasco goes on.

What are the economics of economics texts? Maybe students will pay that much BEFORE they understand economics?

High interest rates by the ECB seems to be leading to a carry trade in U.S. dollars.

As a bibliophile, can't say that I mind the cost of a textbook. Some people fork out about the same per month for cable TV or lattes. While these are enjoyable experiences, one cannot say that they stimulate the pre-frontal cortex.
