I haven't yet read this whole book, but I much prefer this textbook to Mankiw pr Perloff because Krugman owns up to the shortcomings of economics as a discipline up front and then consistently thereafter. He mentions non-marketable goods and where the market fails in the first chapter. He mentions the difference between needs and wants, and how that creates problems. Mankiw and Perloff minimize or ignore such discussions and lay out economics as if it is an objective philosophy for all life.
