First of all, thank you for your support. I sold the last copies of ‘Economics for Canadians’ in August and am very grateful to the schools and districts which have used the book over the years.
Looking forward, a second printing of 2000 copies is underway that should have copies available for sale by November, in time for winter term.
I had planned to write a new edition of the book but in the end I opted to go with a reprint with some small improvements, namely:
- A partial solutions guide
- A list of useful references
- Amendments to lessons to reflect current events and priorities
As well as, of course, correcting typos that got through in 2012, and improving layout and style where possible.
As printing costs have more than doubled, and as postal rates have climbed significantly over the past 9 years, the price of the newly-printed books will be going up. Books ordered as part of a class set of ten or more books will now be $25 per copy, inclusive of postage anywhere in Canada, while books ordered in smaller quantities will be $25 per copy plus postage.
All in all, this is a decision I didn’t want to make but the old pricing scheme didn’t make any sense. Collecting $25 for a book that cost me $20 to send meant that I was not even covering my costs.
Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to hearing from you in the next few months. All the best for a great school year that is hopefully free from lockdowns and disruption.
