It appears that soon after I wrote a post on why I won't read an economics text book, ever, I got a comment by The Man Himself. Wow! Blogito ergo sum!! I'm alive!!!
Unless, of course, it was just an answer-bot.
Anyway, would this book suggested by Unlearning Economics (here) count as a first year economics book? Guess not, but I'll read it anyway. Would Mankiw do? He's an asshole [PDF], but I might — might! — read his Principles if I'll be able to steal it somewhere (download, not take from a bookstore without paying. I don't hurt people, only idiots).
