Taking Sides volumes present current controversial issues in a debate-style format designed to stimulate student interest and develop critical thinking skills. Each issue is thoughtfully framed with an issue summary, an issue introduction, and a postscript or challenge questions. Taking Sides readers feature an annotated listing of selected World Wide Web sites. An online Instructor’s Resource Guide with testing material is available for each volume. Using Taking Sides in the Classroom is also an excellent instructor resource.

The concept here is to present two readings on a set of topics, giving students the opportunity to hear from both sides of an issue. The essays they used are all pretty good, whether they are from Milton Friedman, Joseph Stiglitz, or some lesser known folks.
I have two concerns.
Number one concern is in the supporting commentary. For example, there are two papers on whether or not the "stimulus package" was effective at creating jobs. The first says basically, "the labor market numbers improved after it was passed" without the theoretically underpinning to demonstrate causality. The second says, "there are papers that say no multiplier effect exists," without pointing out the assumptions those papers make.

Great text about business ethics topics. Love the fact that Aspen University gave me the option to purchase this text here on Amazon for a lot less than conventional college bookstores!
This book tackles a number of different issues (including the TARP bailouts, Obamacare, unemployment, etc.) and gives perspective on both sides of the issue from recognized experts on said discussion. Really good way to gain a rudimentary understanding of the topic so you can have at least a somewhat informed opinion on the topic.
