Which is the best introductory economics textbook? When we asked Cambridge professor Diane Coyle for her opinion a while back, she recommended Core Economics. Not only does it cover issues, like inequality, that people really care about, but, even better, you can download the ebook for free. You can use the materials to start teaching yourself economics and see if it’s the subject for you.
The Core project is led by UCL economics professor Wendy Carlin.
