First of all, I would like to thank you for making ‘Workbook for the New I.B. Economics’ a success over the past 7 and a half years. Of the 4000 first edition books printed in 2011, only 650 remain, while of the 3000 second edition books printed in 2013 less than a hundred copies remain with me, with an equivalent number held by Richard Heath’s IB Bookshop in the U.K.
While I expect the second edition to sell out in the coming months, I would like to encourage teachers looking for an accessible and inexpensive learning and revision resource to consider purchasing copies of the first edition for their students. As advertised below, I am happy to sell them at cost for $5 per copy plus shipping. Schools ordering class sets of the book will also receive a complimentary copy of both the second edition workbook and teachers’ guide to ensure that students have access to that book’s quantitative questions.
On a final note, I would also like to point your attention to my most recent articles, “Debt and War” and “Other People’s Money.” They deal with, respectively, the slide from currency wars to trade wars to shooting wars we are now witnessing around the world as countries try to reduce the burden of their debts, and the reasons why corruption is a pervasive feature of government contracts beyond the current scandal involving Canada’s SNC-Lavalin.
