Principles of Economics (3RD 04 - Old Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS continues to be the most popular and widely used text in the Economics classroom. The 4th edition features a strong revision of content in all 36 chapters while maintaining the clear and accessible writing style that is the hallmark of the highly respected author. The 4th edition also features an expanded instructor's resource package designed to assist instructors in course planning and classroom presentation and full integration of content with Aplia, the leading online Economics education program. In the 4th edition Greg Mankiw has created a full educational program for students and instructors — Experience Mankiw 4e. "I have tried to put myself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. My goal is to emphasize the material that students should and do find interesting about the study of the economy." - N. Gregory Mankiw.

Book News Annotation:

Designed for a two-semester introductory course in economics, this textbook covers micro- and macroeconomics. After dealing with the basic tools of supply and demand, he looks at government intervention in market allocations, firm and industrial organization behavior, labor markets, the behavior of the real economy over the long run, and the macroeconomics of open economies, and short run fluctuations within long run trends. Similarly to many textbooks on economics and many other subjects, there is little acknowledgment of controversy within the field. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In writing this textbook, Mankiw has tried to put himself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. The author's conversational writing style is superb for presenting the politics and science of economic theories to tomorrow's decision-makers. Because Mankiw wrote it for the students, the book stands out among all other principles texts by encouraging students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives. Receiving such a praise as "perhaps the best ever" textbook in economic principles, it's no wonder Mankiw's prize project has quickly become one of the most successful books ever to be published in the college marketplace.
