8 Reviews
Described as "the most anticipated book in college publishing", Principles of Economics stands out from all of the other principles texts because it was truly written to make economics accessible. Mankiw brings economics to life by explaining economics with rules and applications, instead of exceptions and theory. He reveals how economics affects our everyday lives by demonstrating economics in "action". This brief text will help beginners understand economics so that they will remember what they learn and become informed, responsible citizens. See for yourself how Mankiw relates economics to real life, and why it is a book that students and lay audiences will understand and professors will enjoy using.
