    Frequent commenter Stephanie Herman mentioned in a comment below that she had self-published a text and a unit study designed to teach kids some economic facts-of-life. She wouldn’t promote it but I will. Here’s the website. The 10 week Jr. Study, in particular, looks intriguing. Fair pricing and voluntary trade are subjects near & dear.

    My goodness! Thank you, Daryl! No, I’m not keen on actively promoting the book on blogs or boards. I figure that if I supply the link and others see value, they’re better spokespeople than I.

    Thanks, also, Chris, for your order!

    I should mention that the Jr.Study on price is actually contained in the book, itself. But for those homeschoolers (or parents of schooled children) who don’t want to commit to a year of economics instruction, I thought the price system was one of the better areas to focus on for a shorter time period.

    Thanks again for your mention, Daryl. It shouldn’t surprise you, but my hit counter went up dramatically from this referring URL! It’s a popular blog for good reason.
