Some of the above are out of print. I assume a reader who knows that one needs to read with paper and pen in hand. I deliberately do not include books by Christopher Bliss, Edwin Burmeister, or Avinash Dixit on growth theory, since I want to emphasize critics of mainstream economics. Nothing against them, and I could probably extend the above list with some thought. I have provided related lists before:

I suppose one might have other lists more Marxist than any of the above, a list for Leontief input-output analysis, a list for ecological economics, and a list with more emphasis on the history of economics.

Textbooks have been available for half a century that teach correct price theory.
