Written in a very student oriented writing style, Colander, Rockerbie, Richter Macroeconomics, engages the student with interesting "stories" and emphasizes the intellectual and historical context to which economic models are applied.
Students today are more interested in policy issues and the authors present the basics of economic reasoning as it relates to policy questions. The author's primary goal is to instill students with "economic sensibility" and uses the integration of policy discussion and thought provoking economic stories to achieve this result.
