Abstract (summary)

De Muijnck and Tieleman emphasise critical thinking that is developed through pluralism when different perspectives are compared (p.190). This, in addition to addressing real-world issues and incorporating the contributions of women and non-white thinkers (p.191) allows for a richer economics pedagogy. While the authors propose including blogs, podcasts, and videos as part of economics pedagogy (p.85), I also incorporate popular books in class. Thus, to answer the call of the authors to include pluralism, real-world content, and to decolonise economics, I offer books on pressing economic issues from a diverse group of writers in my elective economics classes. In the following section, I offer a quick synopsis of the books that I use in my classes.
