Readings are marked with "*" or "**", as on the syllabus. Those with "*" are recommended and present deeper analysis that may assist with better understanding. Those with "**" represent views that are not necessarily justified by economic analysis. They contain useful factual information, but we disagree with some of their interpretations, and they are here so that you will be aware of a range of views.
