On the Market for Principles of Economics Textbooks: Innovation and Product Differentiation.
Stiglitz, Joseph E.
Journal of Economic Education, v19 n2 p171-77 Spr 1988
Discusses the problems presented by current principles of economics textbooks, proposing two theses: that the market for principles textbooks is one of monopolistic competition, and that it reflects certain market failures. Examines changes that are needed so that textbooks will reflect more adequately important changes in the economy and economic profession. (GEA)
