The Best of Economics by Arnold Kling is a high school course in economics. In addition to the traditional topics of microeconomics and macroeconomics, this textbook covers three subject areas that have become increasingly important in the last fifty years:

* Growth Theory
* Finance
* Information Economics

For the next hundred years, their theories of economic efficiency were refined, and this body of work is known as microeconomics.
