Abstract: This paper posits that the sequencing of topics in introductory economics texts plays a subtle, but potentially key, role in influencing the effective delivery of principles courses. The key criterion for effectiveness is the attainment of economic literacy. The effective role of sequencing is illustrated by recourse to the possible implications of the order of content on externalities and imperfect competition subsequent to the treatment of allocative efficiency by markets.
