Boulding, Kenneth E.
Journal of Economic Education, v19 n2 p113-32 Spr 1988
Elucidates general principles that need to undergird economics textbooks. States that they should at least provide a combination of data and theory, where the theory explains the data which, in turn, illustrates the theory. Concludes that texts should transmit real knowledge of complex systems and economies so that future disastrous mistakes might be avoided. (GEA)
