Invitation to economics : understanding argument and policy by Thomas Mayer( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book will help you become a critical consumer of economic arguments. Accordingly, the volume provides many examples of these arguments, and explains why they are wrong. It is not, however, just an exercise in negation; it does present some economic theory, though not in a formal and rigorous way. Instead of stressing a well-explicated theory, it inculcates an intuitive "feel" for economics, which economics courses often overlook due to their strong emphasis on the technical apparatus of economics."--Jacket

Thomas Starkey and the commonweal : humanist politics and religion in the reign of Henry VIII by Thomas F Mayer( )

8 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Starkey (c. 1495-1538) was the most Italianate Englishman of his generation. This book places Starkey into new and more appropriate contexts, both biographical and intellectual, taking him out of others in which he does not belong, from displaced Roundhead to follower of Marsilio of Padua. Beginning with his native Cheshire, it traces his career through Oxford, Padua, Paris, Avignon, Padua again, and finally England, where he spent the last four years of his life trying to fulfil his ambition to serve the commonweal. Most of Starkey's career revolved around his patron Reginald Pole, scion of the highest nobility, but Starkey (and many other Englishmen) managed to balance loyalty to Pole with allegiance to Henry VIII. Out of favour with the king's secretary after the middle of 1536, Starkey turned increasingly to religion, continuing to cling to his conciliarist and Italian Evangelical opinions until his death
A frequent misuse of significance tests by Thomas Mayer( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economists sometimes interpret the failure of a significance test to disconfirm a hypothesis as evidence that this hypothesis is valid. Six examples of this are cited from recent journals. But this is a misinterpretation of what significance tests show. While in general it is correct that every failure to disconfirm a hypothesis adds to its credibility, the term disconfirm is defined differently for this purpose than it is in the context of significance tests
