Spreading the Word

My favorite introductory economics textbook comes in many variants. For American students, there are five versions, each with a different subset of chapters, so every instructor can find one that best suits his or her course. Students abroad can use one of these or choose among various editions that have been tailored to particular regional institutions and languages. Yesterday, I learned about two new members of the line-up: the French Canadian editions, available for both micro and macro.
