The Lessons of "Essentials of Economics" by P. Krugman

Leonid Grebnev


Abstract: The paper reviews the textbook "Essentials of Economics" by Paul Krugman and his co-authors from the point of view of its relevance for the Russian education system. It also compares this textbook with similar books by P. Samuelson and N.G. Mankiw. The author emphasizes a high didactic value of Krugman’s book for teaching in the context of the student-oriented paradigm of education. The absence of significant substantial differences from the earlier textbooks is emphasized.
