The textbook commentary project

For a couple of years now the World Economics Association has had a Textbook Commentary Project led by Stuart Birks of Massey University in New Zealand. Directed at students, it offers brief chapter by chapter commentaries on the seventh edition of Mankiw's Principles of Economics. While this is an American edition, the commentaries will be useful for users of that text that have been adapted for other markets (such as the Canadian one) as well as for students using other standard introductory texts.

I hope to begin contributing to this in the near future with commentaries based on themes raised in our Anti-Textbook.
