Simply Economics is the proven way to learn and apply economics with success. Economics is a fundamental institution of civilization. If understood and implemented correctly, the economy impacts the standard of living for all members of a society. In short, getting economics right is a matter of life and death. Unfortunately, economics is a subject that has been for the most part ignored or glossed over by our education system. The result is an uninformed populace that is easily fooled and ruled by emotional rhetoric and political sleight of hand causing unnecessary pain and suffering. While the basic principles and theories of economics remain constant, building an effective scope, sequence, and formulation for teaching "the dismal science" has been elusive. The typical textbook approach has been a fragmented, technical, and overly assuming mess. The result of this methodology: little learning, much frustration, and harmful results. Other books such as Henry Hazlitt's Economics on One Lesson and Thomas Sowell's Basic Economics are notable exceptions for their ability to express economic principles and applications in easy to understand words. Unfortunately, these books lack some of the basic foundational lessons and connections necessary to understand the discipline with depth and clarity. Faced with this dilemma and after much trial and error with real students in the classroom, Simply Economics was born. Simply Economics is the result of two decades of formulating an effective roadmap for understanding economics. It teaches the discipline through a systemic process where principles, concepts, and practical applications are solidified cognitively by simplicity and repetition. The curriculum is aligned to the Florida State standards in economics and has successfully taught students of all skill levels; including learning/physically disabled, limited English, home school, and gifted students. The bottom line: Simply Economics is the proven way to learn and apply economics with success.
