9th edition and Slavin still refers to the US as "an empty fertile land" for the taking. I wish I had this guy's email address. He really needs to change that. It is an embarrassment to post-secondary education to continue promulgating the myth of North America as having been devoid of inhabitants. It is bad enough what happened to Native Americans, but what greater insult than to completely write them out of history. Yes this is a book about Macroeconomics, but I am still hung up on his first chapter.

As for the rest of the book, the overall tone is juvenile, full of witless humor.
