The Macroeconomics Anti-Textbook: A Critical Thinker's Guide

Yes, it's official! Brian MacLean (of Laurentian University) and Tony Myatt (University of New Brunswick) have signed a contract with Zed Books for The Macroeconomics Anti-Textbook: A Critical Thinker's Guide. The manuscript for the book should be finished next summer. It seems very likely that Tony and I will also be revising and updating The Economics Anti-Textbook, which will appear in a new edition.

When he heard the news, Robert Lucas scratched his head and muttered:
"The Macroeconomics Anti-Textbook?! What would that be about?!"



  1. Do we need this book when Robert Lucas has stated "the central problem of depression-prevention has been solved, for all practical purposes, and has in fact been solved for many decades."
    Of corse we do. Now more than ever! Good luck.

  2. I cant wait to read it! I am reading the Economics Anti Textbook now, its what I have been looking for...I knew something was off about economics when I took the classes

  3. When will the 2nd Edition of the Microeconomics anti textbook be published?

  4. It's too early to say yet, I think. A contract has been signed, but work is still in the early stages, I believe. News will be posted on this blog as it progresses. We also hope to bring out a second edition of The Economics Anti-Textbook at the same time.

  5. Status? I'm looking forward to another good read!

  6. It should be ready for publication late next year from what I hear.
