I know it's supposed to be "clashing views" but I really think it's nonproductive to go with such Well finals are nearing and we've finished this book. I can't say I loved it as a textbook. I thought they did a really poor job picking opposing arguments. Some of the authors were so out of touch that it seemed as if the publishers just went for the most extreme views they could find on each topic (GMOs, age-based health care rationing, Physician and pharmacist rights to deny treatment/rx's).

The concept here is to present two readings on a set of topics, giving students the opportunity to hear from both sides of an issue. The essays they used are all pretty good, whether they are from Milton Friedman, Joseph Stiglitz, or some lesser known folks.

I have two concerns.

Number one concern is in the supporting commentary. For example, there are two papers on whether or not the "stimulus package" was effective at creating jobs. The first says basically, "the labor market numbers improved after it was passed" without the theoretically underpinning to demonstrate causality. The second says, "there are papers that say no multiplier effect exists," without pointing out the assumptions those papers make.

So one paper is empirical and the other is theoretical, and the commentary made before and after does not tie them together, it merely summarizes. A student, especially a principles level student, would have great difficulty in dealing with that, in my view. Few freshmen and sophomores have the sophistication necessary to analyze these essays in a productive way.

That is not true for all the pairs, some of them match up nicely, but you'd have to be very careful in assigning these to make sure you did not put your students into an untenable position of simply having to pick one and go with it, without understanding the issues it creates.

The second concern is that it has a fixed form factor, which I assume is to make page 20 the same to everyone on every device. In the modern age, this is going to frustrate students who are used to the document morphing to match their device, not the other way around.

Overall, a nice piece of work, but the faculty member who assigns it needs to be aware of the shortcomings and plan accordingly with how it is integrated, noting that some of the essays can be read and understood without much input from the professor, while others will require significant intervention.

Too much Global warming, not enough economics. Everything is tied to global warming. The stocks take a downturn, well, blah, blah, blah, but when I went to buy a cheaper version, I thought about how the rainforest was being deforested......

This book tackles a number of different issues (including the TARP bailouts, Obamacare, unemployment, etc.) and gives perspective on both sides of the issue from recognized experts on said discussion. Really good way to gain a rudimentary understanding of the topic so you can have at least a somewhat informed opinion on the topic.

My concern is this: The book is poorly made. The binding is terrible. I had the book for all of two weeks, and having barely touched it, the first 20 or so pages completely tore away from the binding. You may want to consider using a 3 hole punch or other means to keep the book together. The second issue is that

This is a really great book that walks you through several different types of cases and allows you to explore the consequences of each argument. If we don't understand the other's side, then we will have a hard time explaining ours.

It is Kindle so it is pretty difficult to make mistakes with the delivery. However I cannot open this on my phone or my tablet because of its size I guess. It doesn't make sense since I can open the Audacity of Hope which has many more pages. I have the book for class and that is all that matters.

The book sucks though.

Book: Great material, shows both points of view and gets the reader to think instead of just choosing a side. Every solution can be seen as bad and problem can be seen as good depending on your perspective.
The text was a required reading for one of my college courses. The book is laid out in a for vs against style for each case study presented. The cases present valid ethical arguments that are pertinent to today's society covering a range of topics including consumer rights, privacy and safety. It's a great research resource as well.
