For the two-semester principles of economics course.

 

An intuitive and grounded approach to economics 

Get students to think like an Economist using the latest policy and data while incorporating global issues. Macroeconomics, Twelfth Edition builds on the foundation of the previous edition and retains a thorough and careful presentation of the principles of economics. Macroeconomics emphasizes real-world applications, the development of critical thinking skills, diagrams renowned for pedagogy and clarity, and path-breaking technology.

 

Each chapter begins with one of today’s key issues, and additional issues appear throughout the chapter to show the real-world applications of the theory being discussed. When the chapter concludes, students “read between the lines” to think critically about a news article relating to the issue, demonstrating how thinking like an economist can bring a clearer perspective to and deeper understanding of today’s events. Students will begin to think about issues the way real economists do and learn how to explore difficult policy problems to make more informed decisions in their own economic lives.
