This monograph is a survey of materials used in Elementary Economics in the Philippine education, mainly those in introductory economics in college. The materials used in secondary schools are also surveyed. Some books prepared for secondary schools have had some dual use in the elementary economics course in the college level. Survey of textbooks available before May, 1983 indicates that in general, the textbook situation in Economics has been unsatisfactory and therefore needs immense improvement. This conclusion may be true of other social sciences and it seems that Economics is at least in a relatively better shape insofar as textbooks are concerned. The study makes an effort to explain, in the last part, the economics of the textbook market. Suggestions are made on how to improve the supply and quality of textbooks in general.
