More of our great summer sale. Sources say this volume alone should sell for up to $9.95; but, for you, our price today is $0.00. How do we do this? Read the book and find out.

For some reason I seem to be unable to get the UK money symbol to show up in the final text. I have worked at this on and off for a while and even consulted (cue the flash card section) a guru named (name withheld since I still can't get the pound sign to print right.) I think it may have more to do with the base Windows font set and character coding. The tables are a bit unorganized but since everyone always skips these in every economics text it shouldn't a big deal.

Awesome. Another HC! It's like it's raining them. That's one rainstorm we can all enjoy!

Hi Wood,

If you have the language set to "German" (which is what I use), the "£" sign should show up fine. They are present in quite a few of the books that I've done. They don't show up right if the book language is set to "English"!

Thanks Harry. I had set the language to German a long time ago and I am not sure how it got reset to English. That did the trick.

I have posted the revised version as "v2". Somehow all the download stats seemed to vanish from the original.

if you load in a book with a different language then the default, the language gets changed.

Is Karl Marx's "Das Kapital" in the HC series? If not, I'll upload it. We need something a little more "to the left" to balance out Adam Smith .

Not part of the series.

I thought the Marx Brothers were popular starting in the 1920s. There was Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and Zeppo. I don't remember a Karl.

Well, Karl Marx failed to become a credible economist when his economic theory failed to hold any water. Makes sense for him to be left out.

But nobody yet has actually tried to implement his economical theories as he intended them to be implemented. Marx would spin in his grave if anyone tried to tell him that the Soviet Union, etc, were "communist" countries in the sense that he understood the word "communism". Marxism certainly is not the sort of totalitarianism that existed in those countries.
